Nigerians hold anti-Buhari protests as president extends medical leave

In the UK since mid-January for medical treatment, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has extended his medical leave. It's not clear how much longer the 74-year-old will be out of the country, but the secrecy surrounding his condition is feeding into discontent at home.

Also, we take a look at the monthly struggle of women in Madagascar, where getting access to clean water or sanitary products is a real challenge.

Plus, we hear from the World Health Organization about cancer treatment on the continent. Only 30% of African countries have sophisticated treatment centres, which has a dangerous knock-on effect on the recovery chances of patients.

And the Indomitable Lions receive a heroes' welcome as they land back home in Cameroon after winning the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
