April 30, 2015 – Picture: Chinese-Australian Man Executed In Indonesia, Andrew Chan Writes Letter About Danger Of Drug Trafficking

One of the 8 foreigners killed by firing squad earlier this week in Indonesia, Mr Andrew Chan penned a thought provoking letter to children weeks before his execution.

Read the heartbreaking letter below:

‘I was an average kid and let me tell you that my teachers didn’t like me one bit and I was no teacher’s pet. But to cut a long story short, I got mixed up with drugs at a pretty young age and by the time I was 15 I was merged into the scene.’

‘Ive done things which I am not proud of in my life and I’ve made some pretty stupid decisions. My life is a perfect example of an absolute waste.
‘Now to elaborate the effects of where I am, I’ve missed weddings, I’ve missed funerals and the simple presence of my own family.

‘The hurt and pain – I don’t just put it onto myself, but the pain I put on my family is agonising. A simple touch such as a hug is not possible for a condemned man like me. I have nothing but an iron bar to hug rather than to be embraced by those I love and who I miss.’


‘What you choose today will make what you become tomorrow. If you want to be a thug and a big bad wolf, I’ll see you soon inside. But for those that want to do something in life I’d like you guys to see how important it is to put your head down and study hard.

‘I hope these words will penetrate in your minds and in your hearts and I hope that most of you, if not all of you, will achieve more than I ever did.’

This is sad!! Hope other intending drug pushers will learn from him and do the right thing.

May his soul and that of 7 others rest in peace.

    This is also heads-up for those condemning Indonesia. Drug is bad. Look at how it messed up young kids in America. And those guys can kill at will. Touch crimes deserve tough measures. I hope God temper mercy for their crimes.

    @Naijagists,I was expecting you to post newe about a Nigerian American based medical practitioner (a woman) whom the authority accused of murdering a child she was taking care. The baby died from 130 degrees burns from hot water in a bathtop. I haven’t got the exact detail of the incident but it appears the whole thing was accidental.

    The nurse was arrested when she tried to board flight to Nigeria to evade arrest. If you do get the news, kindly post it. Thanks
