Nigerian Makes Death Wish In Indonesian Prison!

Raheem Agbaje Salami's final request was that he be allowed to make a phone call to his family in Nigeria before he was shot.

ONE of the men slated to be executed along with Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran has asked that his organs be donated to Indonesian people in need.



The offer was made by Nigerian death row candidate Raheem Agbaje Salami, who has served his time in Madiun Prison in the east Java province.

He is set to be transferred to the prison island of Nusakambangan for execution.

Tempo online reported that Salami, who was caught bringing 5.3kg of heroin through Surabaya airport, said he wanted his eyes and kidneys to be donated once he was shot by firing squad in coming days.

Salami’s spiritual adviser told Tempo that the Nigerian was ready to die, but wanted his death to mean something.

Titus Tri Wibowo also said Raheem had written to authorities saying he wished to be buried in the Catholic part of a cemetery in Madiun.

Raheem, said Wibowo, had a final request was that he be allowed to make a phone call to his family in Nigeria before he was shot.

Hundreds of Nigerians are serving time in Indonesian prisons. Nine, including Salami, are on death row. Their families typically cannot afford to visit them in Indonesia.
