DPRK doctors murdered in Nigeria

According to the Diplomat:

In February, three North Korean men were murdered in their homes in Yobe, Nigeria. Their bodies bore wounds indicative of machete blows, most likely inflicted by members of the jihadist group Boko Haram, whose bloody war has claimed up to 15,000 lives across the country since 2009. One of the men was beheaded. Two were slashed across the throats. Their wives were found hiding in the flowerbeds. The Associated Press report on the murders contained scant details about the lives of the men, who were not named, besides their profession: they were doctors. They arrived in 2005 as part of a ‘technical exchange’ with a local hospital and stayed a decade. They lived in modest homes in a quiet neighborhood and rode three-wheeled taxis around town.
