Nigeria's Appeal Court has rejected one challenge to Bola Tinubu's narrow victory in February's presidential election.

After a six-hour verdict, they said the appeal by Peter Obi's Labour Party was without merit and dismissed all his arguments, including fraud.

Their verdict on the challenge by Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party is expected shortly.

Despite the election challenge, Mr Tinubu was sworn into office on 29 May.
