Supreme Court decides on Reverend King's fate today
Reverend King was charged to court by the Lagos state government on September 26th 2006 on a six-count charge of attempted murder and murder of one of his members, Ann Uzoh on August 2nd 2006.
Justice Joseph Oyewole of the Lagos State High Court, Ikeja had on January 11th 2007 sentenced him to death by hanging for the murder of Ann Uzoh. The controversial pastor approached the Lagos state Court of Appeal but his appeal was thrown out and the High courts verdict upheld.
Dissatisfied with the Court of Appeals verdict, Reverend King approached the Supreme court, asking for the verdict to be upturned. The Apex court is expected to give its ruling this morning.
