#1 Other reports say they were North Koreans.

#3 So, What the hell were they doing there?

Many possibles:

They, North or South Korean, were working under contract to the Nigerian government.

They, if North Korean, were there on behalf of the North Korean government as part of building political ties with Nigeria.

They, if South Korean, were under contract to a non-governmental (NGO) organization or a private company such as a mining firm.

They, if South Korean, were there either on behalf of the South Korean government as part of building political ties with Nigeria, or doing charitable work on behalf of a NGO.

Potsikum is located in an agricultural (livestock) region and has seen attacks by Boko Haram in the past. Given that other news outlets are saying 'North Koreans', I'd say the first two options are viable, with the first one being the most likely.

#4 These jihadists are the biggest bunch of nutjobs. Ever since they found out that the CIA used a doctor in a vaccination program to bring down Bin Laden ... they have been wiping out every single doctor and health worker in their territories. What morons. They are going to wind up with outbreaks of measles, polio and who-knows-what-else because of this stupidity.

Unfortunately, rebel or insurgents troops taking out the 'medicos' is a long-standing feature of every African war.
