Nigerians executed in Indonesia By Firing Squad Yesterday

Indonesia executes four drug convicts on Nusakambangan
28 July 2016 Asia
Indonesia has executed the first four of 14 drug convicts on
death row.
One Indonesian and three Nigerians were killed by firing
squad shortly after midnight local time (17:00 GMT), reports
say. There has been no confirmation yet from the government.
It is not clear if the remaining 10 have been spared or face
being put to death in the coming days.
Amnesty International condemned the executions as a
"deplorable act" that violated local and international law.
Indonesia has some of the world's toughest drug laws, and
has faced intense criticism internationally for resuming
executions.
Fourteen, mostly foreign, drug convicts were executed last
year to widespread condemnation.
Cases of concern
This, the third round of executions under President Joko
Widodo, took place at Nusakambangan prison island.
Relatives had gathered there earlier in the day to say
goodbye to loved ones, according to the Jakarta Post . It
also said 17 ambulances were sent to the island - 14 of
them carrying coffins.
One source told local media the execution took place at
00:45 Friday, having been postponed because of heavy rain
and strong winds.
Those who were executed have been named as Indonesian
Freddy Budiman, and three Nigerians - Seck Osmane,
Humphrey Jefferson Ejike and Michael Titus Igweh.
Those who remain on death row include three other
Indonesians, a Pakistani, an Indian, two other Nigerians and
two Zimbabweans.
Activists have been particularly concerned by the cases of
the Pakistani man, Zulfiqar Ali - who they say was beaten
into confessing to heroin possession - and an Indonesian
woman, Merri Utami - who says she was duped into
becoming a drug mule.
President Widodo vowed to take a hard line against drug
trafficking when he was elected in 2014, saying he would
not compromise over death sentences to convicted drug
dealers.
Australia withdrew its ambassador from Indonesia for five
weeks in protest at the execution of two Australians.
