Zimbabwean farmers working Nigerian land

A group of Zimbabwean farmers are helping Nigerians learn how to use the vast amounts of fertile land in their country.

Nigeria has the largest population in Africa and a booming economy because of the oil industry, but it imports almost all of its food.

Opposition from locals forced off the land has waned as they have benefited from the scheme, but the farmers say the future is not certain.

Jonah Fisher reports from Kwara state, Nigeria.
