Indonesia yesterday executed three Nigerian drug convicts by firing squad. The Nigerians were put to death along with one Indonesian despite pleas from relatives and international bodies. The execution took place despite heavy rain and thunderstorms.
Deputy Attorney-General for General Crimes Noor Rachmad said; “The executions were for now conducted on four convicts on death row,”.
“This was done not in order to take lives but to stop evil intentions, and the evil act of drug trafficking.”
Why the 10 other drug convicts, who had been expected to face the firing squad, were not executed was not stated, although the island where the convicts were being put to death was hit by a major storm as the executions took place.
