Nigeria's New President

(CNN) Post-election violence continues in northern Nigeria, highlighting the deep divide between the mostly Muslim north and the majority Christian south. On Friday, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan warned armed protesters that “enough was enough”.

The incumbent won the April 16th election against former military ruler Muhammadu Buhari, sparking chaos in the north. The violence has killed more than 150 people and displaced thousands from their homes.

Our Christian Purefoy was at the polls during the presidential election and witnessed the moment when the winner was announced.
