Indonesia has executed three Nigerian drug convicts by firing squad, an official has said.
The Nigerians were put to death along with one Indonesian today despite pleas from relatives and international bodies. the confirmation came just after midnight (Indonesian time) and took place despite heavy rain and thunderstorms.
Deputy Attorney-General for General Crimes Noor Rachmad said one local and three Nigerian drug convicts were executed by firing squad.
"The executions were for now conducted on four convicts on death row," he said.
"This was done not in order to take lives but to stop evil intentions, and the evil act of drug trafficking."
He did not say why 10 other drug convicts, who had been expected to face the firing squad, were not executed, although the island where the convicts were being put to death was hit by a major storm as the executions took place.
Update on the Scammer case of Cancer Patient Mayowa Ahmed, Toyin Aimakhu reports to the police and family members arrested...
This was Actress Toyin Aimakhu crying at the police station a few hours ago, it was reported that people involved in raising money for cancer patient, Mayowa Ahmed, reached out to us to say that they discovered that the whole fundraising for the sick lady was a scam. I've been in touch with quite a few people, and they insist the family knew Mayowa was beyond help but still went ahead to raise money for her. Mayowa's family have released a statement insisting it's no scam and that they are truly taking her abroad for medical treatment. (Now, it's supposedly tomorrow).
In their new statement this afternoon, they said they are taking her to a hospital in Abu Dhabi but when they started raising money for her, they said they wanted to take her to Emory hospital, Atlanta, who had given them a quote of $100k. You will find the letter from Emory Hospital after the cut. (Above are photos of Toyin Aimakhu crying at the station)
Mayowa's family did indeed contact Emory Hospital, Atlanta to make inquiries and they were told that they would make an initial deposit of $100k after which it would cost them between $3,000-$30,000 per session, and a patient requires between 10-50 treatments.
But as of today, there's no letter from Emory Hospital inviting her over. Mayowa does not have a US Visa and the cancer has even spread to her liver.
Some of Mayowa's family members are being detained at Area D in Mushin while they investigate the allegations. The person I feel most sorry for in all this is Mayowa herself. She doesn't deserve all this on top of fighting for her life. Sad!
This is a statement from the family...

The Nigerian Union in South Africa has confirmed the death of 35 year old Nigerian businessman, Ikejiaku Chinedu, who was beaten to death by guards of a private security firm situated on the outskirts of Polokwane, Limpopo Province of South Africa at about 8p.m on Tuesday July 25th.
Chinedu who is married with three children and hails from Ogwa, Mbaitolu Local Government Area of Imo state, was chased by the guards and seriously beaten until he died. Autopsy carried out showed he had many bruises on him.
The South African police say a thorough investigation will be carried out. The deceased is the 15th Nigerian to be killed in South Africa this year.
A traditional ruler in Oyo state, the Atapa of Itapa Ijesa, Dr. Olapade Agoro, has threatened to file a lawsuit against Senator Dino Melaye over his verbal attack on Senator Remi Tinubu during the senate plenary early this month. Speaking to the Nation at his palace yesterday, Agoro who is a politician and religious leader said
“No wonder, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, without mincing words, told the whole world that the National Assembly is full of corrupt legislators. That was a weighty statement. When you say corruption, you are not limiting it to taking bribe.
It could be immoral. By what he did on the floor of the Senate, I will say Melaye has committed immorality. For this young man to have lost morality and commonsense on the floor of the hallowed chamber, to have threatened to beat up a woman, that was too much. You don’t say you want to beat up another man’s wife on the hallowed chamber; forget who the husband is. That issue is beyond political scene. It raises the question of morality. When a man says he will beat up another man’s wife and even impregnate her, it means the man has admitted to be a rapist. By now, the police should have stepped in. It’s a reckless and senseless vituperation that should be taken beyond the floor of the Senate. The young man has been so reckless ever since he became a senator. It shows how corrupt he is. I don’t know why that type of character should be allowed to continue staying in the Senate. The APC should have by now sanctioned him to protect the name of the party, not demanding an apology from him. I could have taken him court, if not for anything, because we don’t expect characters like him in the Senate. He should be made to face the music”.
