A number of protesters stormed the appeal court in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital on Monday to express their concern about the outcome of the election result but were restrained from gaining entrance to the court by security operatives.

“We are here calling on the judiciary to give Nigerians justice,” says protest leader Orngu Angwu. As the country grapples with widespread insecurity, economic woes and growing poverty, many Nigerians had hoped the presidential ballot would bring about change but many were disappointed by the way the election was conducted.

On Monday, a panel of five Nigerian judges sat for a pre-hearing session in the trial involving opposition leaders contesting the February election won by the ruling party.
