FG Demands Corpses Of Executed Nigerians In Indonesia

The Federal Government has demanded for the bodies of four Nigerians who were executed by firing squad in Indonesia on drug related offences on Tuesday. The FG says it was rather an unfortunate incident, that despite its pleas and that of the international community, the Indonesian Government went ahead to execute them. It therefore warned Nigerians to stay away from drugs.

In a statement released yesterday by the Public Communications Division of Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Abuja the Federal Government demanded their bodies saying they will be brought home for decent burials and also commiserated with their families. Continue…


“The Federal Government of Nigeria has received with deep disappointment, news of the execution of four Nigerians ─ Martin Anderson, Okwudili Oyatanze, Jaminu Abashin and Sylvester Obiekwe ─ by the government of Indonesia for drug-related offences.

“These executions have taken place despite spirited pleas for clemency made at the highest level by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, and more recently by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Aminu Wali.

“The Federal Government wishes to express its condolences to the families of the deceased.

“It has asked the Indonesian government for the repatriation of the remains of the executed persons so that they can be accorded decent burials by their various communities.


“Furthermore, government is committed to engage the government of Indonesia and other friendly countries regarding the conclusion of Prisoner Transfer Agreements and other bilateral means of safeguarding the interest and welfare of Nigerians,” the statement read in parts.

  1. Australia president Tony Abbott, Brazilian president and international committee plead on their behalf but all fell into deaf ear. I think Nigerian shall stay away from taking drug to Indonesia.

    3. All these evil breeds of oduduwa, the children of Satan commenting here should be ashamed of themselves. Every Yoruba person is closely associated with the demons and angels of darkness and they have refused to let go and their evil and wickedness. I don't know why they're all like this...
      May God punish all the evil children of oduduwa for their extreme cruelty, inhumanity, barbarism.

  7. Abi! What's left again to be done by the cruel and heard heartened Indonesian government. Return the dead bodies of our brothers. Man isn't God, and anyone's life can be taken by the giver anytime. They made the law, they could change and alter it at will. But personally I think people in power over there are wild animals in human skin that enjoys putting families, friends and loved ones in enternal grief. I was delighted to read that one of the 9 was spared at the 11th hour. How I wish all was granted Mercy.

  16. Olu@atlanta as usual being sectional and now writing under anonymity that its only 'Igbos that are taking drugs all around the world and embarrassing Nigeria'. I can pick up ur deeense writing anywhere I see it no matter how you disguise yourself. No problem. Remember u are the 'PATIENT VULTURE' as you described yourself in one of your posts, you can go and do the best you know how to do. Go and feast on their carcass and use your ogongolo neck to see whether you can see any of their properties to steal. You did not see Yoruba name there. HYPOCRITE, XENOPHOBIST, ANU MPAMA, PIG.
