Nigerian on death row in Indonesia sends final message to lover

A Nigerian facing execution in Indonesia for drug smuggling has written a heart-rending letter to say a final goodbye to his lover.

Raheem Agbaje-Salami, 42, was taken on Wednesday from a prison in East Java to a prison on an Island off the southern coast of Java where he was due to be executed with nine other inmates this month.

In a letter submitted through the authorities, Agbaje-Salami asked his Indonesian girlfriend, Angela Intan, to be strong and have faith in God.

“I want to thank and say goodbye to my beloved sweetheart, Angela Intan, who has stood beside me through happiness and sadness,” he said.

“Thank you for everything, for the time we spent together. Knowing and loving you has been a gift and even though it was only for a short time it has had a deep meaning in my life,” the letter said.

Mr. Agbaje-Salami was sentenced to death for trying to smuggle heroin into Indonesia.

The authorities said two other Nigerian drug traffickers were also scheduled to be executed this month after requests for presidential clemency were rejected.

    Indonesia is a democratic country, not short of democratic ideals, we now have three Nigerian facing the hangman’s noose. When Buhari did this some thirty years ago the roof wanted to come down. Out of the ten to be put away three are Nigerians. As a people this is not good for the reputation of our country. Worst still the President of that country has turned down a plea for pardon from the President of Australia, Brazil and now Nigeria.

      Perhaps if they had allowed Buhari to cleanse
      the land then, Nigerians would not be out there being victims of misgovernance.
      How many Ghanaians are being arrested for drug trafficking. Thanks to Rawlings.
      These are the results of misgovernance. Today, we all know who are the
      best friends of our leaders. They are either thugs, thieves,murderers and drug
      dealers. Quote me any day, you cannot get your politics wrong and have good
      governance. No way. And you cannot hate discipline and not perish.

    What’s the surprise here? A yoruba man who thinks he can game the Indonesian system like he used to do in Nigeria before the dawn of GEJ is about to gave justice? One less APC

      You are an 1diot, must you link everything to ethnicity and politics? Whatever your dysfunction is, please keep it to yourself and stop spreading venom of hatred on this platform, person of bad pedigree.

        We are all forgetting one big thing, the law. He has broken the law & must face the consequences of that country. He took his chance & got caught.

      This is not about Yoruba or any other tribe. He is a Nigerian and the young Indonesian President rejected the plea of Brazil and Australian Presidents. Are the convicts from these countries Yorubas. Please stop hate speech it only but impedes the progress of Nigeria.
