Nigerian, Ejike Eleweke Killed Out Of Error, Indonesia Admits, One Year After Execution

The execution of Humphrey Jefferson Ejike Eleweke, a Nigerian man who was killed in Indonesia for drug trafficking has been blamed on 'maladministration'.

The Indonesian Ombudsman has admitted that there was “maladministration” in the execution.

Jakatar Post report says that, Ninik Rahayu, Ombudsman Commissioner, told a press briefing last Friday that there had been “negligence and discrimination practised by the Attorney-General’s Office and the Supreme Court” in relation to Eleweke, who was executed in Central Java on July 29, 206, for drug crimes.

"The Indonesian government just hate us, they want to kill us because we are black," Eleweke had said before he was executed.

Ninik said the execution of Eleweke did not comply with regulations. The execution took place while the convict was seeking clemency, she said.

Indonesia’s 2002 law on clemency stipulates that the execution of those seeking clemency cannot be carried out before the issuance of a presidential decree in relation to the appeal.

Another sign of maladministration, Ninik said, was that the Supreme Court was guilty of discrimination by rejecting a case review appeal filed by Eleweke without “a proper explanation”.

Eleweke was one of four drug convicts executed on July 29 last year, alongside another Nigerian, Michael Titus Igweh, Indonesian Freddy Budiman and Senegalese Seck Osmane.

Despite several last minute appeals by international community for a stay of execution, it failed to sway President Joko Widodo.
