    President Muhammadu Buhari has been re-elected in Saturday's polls, but his main opposition rival is calling the results "rigged".

    The runner-up from the People's Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, says he will challenge the outcome in court.

    Nigeria's courts have tended not to favour opposition parties in the past.
