The Christian Praying Assembly founded by the now-imprisoned pastor, Rev King is still a shadow of what he was after its founder was arrested 15 years ago for killing one of its members and attempting to kill five others.
The church, which was known for its large number of cars and visitors, had lost its reputation on Sundays.
A Punch News reporter who visited the church and made a mistake in his arrival provided details on how the Sunday service is now conducted in the church, including prayers allegedly sent by the pastor to the remaining members.
Pastor King is well-known in the media following the brutal murder of his church member Ann Uzoh. According to the details of the murder investigation, Ann Uzoh and five others were allegedly charged with adultery and severely beaten by the leader.
He then gathered them all together after beating them severely, causing them to be doused in gasoline, and lighting them with fire. Five victims were able to escape the brutal killings but Ann Uzoh, who burned 65 percent, died from his injuries at the hospital.
He was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the attempted murder of five people and was sentenced to death by firing squad for the murder of Ann Uzoh.
The sentences were upheld by the appellate court after he failed to provide a generator that he said exploded and caused the victim's death.
Justice who read his case in the Supreme Court described it as a direct act in horror movies. His death certificate has not been signed after the next Lagos administration, including Tinubu, Fashola, Ambode and now SanwoOlu has refused to sign or pardon him.
A Punch news reporter who visited the church said everything looked normal in the church, except for a large number of empty seats. The members still respect the pastor as they seemed to still adhere to his teachings.
A short time later, the minister came out and read a prayer letter from the GO himself. Sunday Punch was later received from the Nigerian Correctional Services Officer who said it was not known if inmates could have visitors
