Rev. King, Nigerian Sociopath Sentenced to Death by Hanging

by Uche Onegeria 27 Feb , 2016  

If you say Nigeria does not have psychopaths or sociopaths, I present you one – Reverend king. His mind must be an enigma for the likes of Luther (as portrayed in the British show by Idris Elba) or Dr. Alex Cross (of the book series by James Patterson).

Reverend King (an alias obviously) former General-Overseer of the Christian Praying Assembly (with real name, Chukwuemeka Ezeugo), has been convicted to die by hanging. Prior to this trial, he has been in jail for the past 10 years.

When Rev. King “ruled his church”, he referred to himself as a god, the owner of the universe who could do anything (OMG. King, even God can do anything but he does not. Personally, sometimes I want to strangle people but I do not). 

Here are some of Dr.King’s alleged crimes:

  1. Physically abusing his church members by beating or flogging them severely to inflict inhumane injuries.
  2. Dehumanization of members where some members were instructed to serve him in the nude.
  3. Slavery as permanent maids where some members served him for years and were banned from reaching out to their families.
  4. King sentenced 6 of his church members to death by burning them. One of them died in 2006, 11 days after the incident.
King’s conviction is a great example of what a country with a true justice system should be like. I do not even want to imagine the lengths he would have gone if he was not stopped. The justice (legal) system exists to keep the system in check in a “one law rules all” system.
In a great justice system, punishment meted out to criminals serves as deterrents to the rest of the system.

I also hope that anyone currently held in the clutches of any church/system (in any way especially against their will) would see this as a wake-up call to regain their self-control and flee their bondage.
