Meet the 3 Nigerians Scheduled For Execution by Indonesia for Drug Trafficking

They are to be executed along side 7 other inmates at any time.

Raheem Agbaje Salami

Salami is a Nigerian holding a Spanish passport. He is believed to be Jamiu Owolabi Abashin, but entered Indonesia using a Spanish passport with the name Raheem Agbaje Salami. Salami was caught with 11 lb of heroin inside his suitcase in Surabaya airport on 2 September 1998.

A court in Surabaya gave him a life sentence in April 1999, which was reduced by the High Court to 20 years. Salami appealed and the Supreme Court gave him a death sentence. His clemency application was rejected on 5 January 2015.

He tried to challenge the rejection of his clemency but the challenged failed and he is in the process of an appeal.

Sylvester Obiekwe Nwolise

Born on 7 July 1965. He was sentenced to death in September 2004 by a court in Tangerang. His clemency appeal was rejected in February. The court found him guilty of trafficking 2.6lb of heroin via Sukarno Hatta Airport in Jakarta in 2002.

In January 2015 the Indonesian National Narcotics Body said that Sylvester was running a drugs ring in Nusakambangan jail, where he is being held.

Okwudili Oyatanze

Oyatanze is a 45-year-old Nigerian citizen, and was given the death sentence by the Tangerang court for trafficking 2.4lb of heroin through Sukarno Hatta airport in 2001. His clemency was also rejected in February 2015.
