Live updates: Nigeria election – Shootings as candidates clash over attempt to snatch ballot box in Anambra

Counting is still underway in the just-ended General Elections in Nigeria.

Turnout appears to be high, especially among young people who make up about a third of the 87 million eligible voters.

The election has seen an unprecedented challenge to the two-party system that has dominated Nigeria for 24 years.

The candidates comprise Peter Obi from the previously little known Labour Party, Mr Tinubu from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and Atiku Abubakar of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and 15 others.

So far official results from the south-western Ekiti state show a clear victory for ruling party candidate Bola Tinubu in one of his strongholds.

In the upcoming updates, we will bring you the latest headlines from major press hubs covering the polls.
