Nigeria pleads for citizens on Indonesia death row


ABUJA: Nigeria on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) urged Indonesia to spare the lives of three of its citizens facing execution after being convicted of drug trafficking there. The three Nigerians are on death row in a country with some of the toughest drug laws in the world, having lost their appeals in Indonesian courts against their convictions. A senior official in the Nigerian foreign ministry, Danjuma Sheni, conveyed the country’s plea for clemency to the Indonesian ambassador to Nigeria, Harry Purwato.
