Nigeria: Millions prepare to go to the polls on Saturday

Nigeria is just hours away from what analysts predict will be the country's tightest ever presidential elections. Boko Haram threatens to disrupt Saturday's presidential vote. The army though says it's pushing back, and has retaken the town of Gwoza, thought to be the militants' headquarters. And Sierra Leoneans are told to stay home as the country enforces a 3 days lockdown in a final push to rid itself of ebola.
