If indications are anything to go by, the 10 prisoners on death row in Indonesia for drug trafficking could be up for execution today (Tuesday).

On Saturday, the prisoners were given the mandatory 72-hour notice of execution in according with Indonesian law. Families of the condemned have since arrived the Nusakambangan Island, where the prison holding the condemned prisoners is located.

Inspite of the various calls for leniency by several governments and international groups, the Indonesian authorities have held firm in their decision, with President Joko Widodo refusing to grant clemency to the condemned inmates.

In the meantime, the Attorney-General's office has said the 9 will be executed simultaneously by firing squad.

One of the 10 condemned prisoners, French citizen, Serge Areski Atlaoui still has an outstanding legal complaint over his conviction and may be exempted from today's execution.

The others are Australians Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan, Mary Jane Fiesta Veloso from Philippines,Ghanaian Martin Anderson, Indonesian Zainal Abidin bin Mgs Mahmud Badarudin and Brazilian Rodrigo Gularte.

So who are the Nigerians on the line-up and how did they end up on death row in faraway Indonesia? Here they are.
