Nigeria's Gbagyi people fight for land money

Indigenous group say country's capital was built on their land decades ago and they are awaiting payment.

    Nigeria’s Gbagyi people have been waiting for more than 30 years to be paid for lost land.

    They say the government evicted them in 1976 and demolished their homes to build the capital.
