It has been exactly one year since Nigerians elected their first opposition candidate for president. Muhammadu Buhari took power on a platform of ending corruption and the terrorism of Boko Haram. But how happy are Nigerians with his progress?
Fourteen people have been killed and dozens hurt in multiple suicide attacks in Maiduguri, the state capital of Borno. The city is the worst hit by Boko Haram's eight-year insurgency.
A teenage suicide bomber has killed at least 50 people in the northeastern Nigerian town of Mubi, with the death toll expected to rise further. Officials believe jihadi group Boko Haram is responsible.
The militant Islamist group Boko Haram has been terrorizing parts of northeast Nigeria for years. The violence is pushing the region to the brink of a hunger crisis.
In a dramatic turn of events, the ex-head of state has been ordered to appear as a witness in the corruption trial of his former party spokesman, Olisa Metuh. But he failed to show as trial continues.
