The chairwoman of the House Committee on diaspora matters, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has revealed that there are currently more Nigerians on death row in Indonesia.
Her revelation comes as the Asian country last night executed eight foreigners including four Nigerians on the island of Bali over drug related crimes.
Abike Dabiri-Erewa gave an interview to Channels TV and said that in 2008 she visited the Asian nation alongside a federal government delegation and she discovered that then there were 21 Nigerians on death row for drug related offences.
She said that in Indonesia, in every stop in the country there were advertisements displayed warning people against drugs and saying the penalty for drug trafficking is death.
Abike Kafayat Oluwatoyin Dabiri-Erwada is a Nigerian politician and member of the Nigeria Federal House of Representatives representing Ikorodu constituency in Lagos state. She was the chairwoman of the House Committee on media and publicity.
