Contrary to earlier reports, six – not four – Nigerians are among the 14 prison inmates (four Indonesians and 10 foreign nationals) expected to face the firing squad this weekend in Indonesia.

While the names of the 14 drug convicts are being kept secret by Indonesian authorities, a group of lawyers from the Community Legal Aid Institute has leaked the list dominated by Nigerians but also featuring two other Africans: Seck Osmane of Senegal and Frederick Luttar of Zimbabwe. Below are the details of the six Nigerians as extracted from a Guardian of London report quoting the Community Legal Aid Institute:

Humphrey Jefferson Ejike Eleweke

Jefferson, then a restaurant owner, was arrested in 2003 after police found 1.7kg of heroin in a room used by one of his employees. He was sentenced to death in 2004 and has until now declined to ask for presidential clemency as it would entail seeking forgiveness for a crime of which he says he is innocent. His lawyers say there is evidence that he was framed.

Michael Titus Igweh

Titus was found guilty of possessing 5.8kg of heroin in 2002. At the time he was 23 years old. He was sentenced to death the following year. He claims he was subject to beatings and torture in detention, this May telling the district court in Tangerang during his appeal that his genitals were repeatedly electrocuted to elicit a confession under duress.

Okonkwo Nonso Kingsley

Arrested at Polonia airport, in Medan, in 2003, Kingsley was caught with 1.1kg of heroin and sentenced to death in May 2004. The heroin was stored in dozens of capsules that Kingsley had swallowed, found after customs apparently noticed the odd shape of his stomach. The supreme court rejected a judicial review filed by Kingsley in November 2014.

Ozias Sibanda

Sibanda was reportedly arrested with three other nationals from Nigeria at Soekarno Hatta airport in 2001. Like Okonkwo Nonso Kingsley (see above), Sibanda had arrived on a flight from Pakistan and had swallowed capsules of heroin. Sibanda was initially identified as a Zimbabwean national, as he was travelling on a forged passport.

Obina Nwajagu

Nwajagu was reportedly sentenced to death after he was caught at an Ibis hotel trying to buy 45 capsules of heroin from a Thai national. He has been held at Nusa Kambangan prison in Central Java since 2003. Nwajagu’s appeal for clemency has been rejected by the Indonesian president, Joko Widodo.

Eugene Ape

Ape was arrested in 2003 and sentenced to death after 300g of heroin was found among clothes in a bag that he owned. Prosecutors at the South Jakarta district court initially called for a sentence of 12 years before he was handed the death penalty.
