Video - Nigerians fight government in court over contested land

Hundreds of thousands of Nigerians living in informal settlements face having their homes demolished.

Authorities say the households were built illegally on government land, but the people who live there argue they are the legal owners. Now they are taking their claim to court.

Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege reports from Mpape, the largest settlement in Abuja, the capital, facing demolition.
