Nigeria deports seven North Korean nationals, immigration official says

One deportee may be director of U.S.-sanctioned Korea South-South Cooperation Corp

Nigeria repatriated seven North Koreans on Wednesday, the country's immigration service (NIS) said, with the men now barred from returning to the country for life.

The reason for the deportation order, reportedly handed down from the country's interior minister Rauf Aregbesola, is unclear.
