The Supreme Court has ruled that General-Overseer of the Christian Praying Assembly, Chukwuemeka Ezeugo, a.k.a Rev. King is to die by hanging.
Seven-man panel of Justices of the apex court led by Justice Walter Onnoghen, upheld the death sentence that was earlier handed to Ezeugo by the Lagos state high court.
"This appeal has no merit. The judgement of the court of appeal is hereby affirmed. The prison sentence that was earlier handed to the appellant is no longer relevant in view of the death sentence passed on him", Justice Ngwuta held.
