(Photos): Indonesia Executes 6 Drug Convicts Including A Nigerian, Daniel Enemuo

Six people including a Nigerian, Daniel Enemuo that were convicted of drugs offenses in Indonesia have been executed. A spokesman for the attorney general's office who confirmed it said the execution was carried out by a firing squad on the Nigerian , and 4 other foreigners from Brazil, the Netherlands, Vietnam and Malawi and an Indonesia woman.

 "The execution of the six convicts has been carried out," spokesman for the attorney general's office, Tony Spontana, told news agency AFP
The 53-year-old Brazilian, who was caught with drugs at Jakarta airport, and the 62-year-old Dutchman were executed on Nusakambangan Island, home to a high-security prison, off the main island of Java.

While the Nigerian, Daniel Enemuo,  Namaona Denis, from Malawi; and an Indonesian woman, Rani Andriani, were executed at the same location.
The sixth convict, Vietnamese woman Tran Thi Bich Hanh, was executed in the Boyolali district in central Java.
Their bodies were brought from the island by ambulances early Sunday either for burial or cremation, as requested by relatives and representatives of their embassies.
The executions mark the first time capital punishment has been carried out under new President Joko Widodo. Despite international outcry from President of Brazil to avoid death penalty on the convicts, the President turned it down last month.

People knows that results of carrying drugs into Asian countries are death penalty so why do they still do it?
