A Nigerian gospel singer who has released several songs while in prison is now on death row after being found guilty of smuggling Heroin into Indonesia.
Okwudili Ayotanze is be executed with two other Nigerians, Jamiu Owolabi Abashin who was caught smuggling Heroin using a false name Raheem Agbaje Salami, and Silvester Obiekwe.
40-yr-old Ayotanze was caught in 2001 trying to smuggle 1.15 kilograms of heroin from Pakistan into Soekarno-Hatta international airport in Jakarta.
Reports say Ayotanze's studio is the supermax Pasir Putih prison on the notorious Nusakambangan island, known as Indonesia's Alcatraz. And his band mates are fellow inmates on guitars and a prison guard on the keyboard, having written and sang songs such as 'God Bless Indonesia' and 'Never be afraid'.
