Nigeria's 'Michael Jackson' directs traffic in Maiduguri

The Michael Jackson-like dance moves of Nigerian traffic policeman Umar Abubakar have earned him the nickname MJ Traffic.

He keeps the cars moving in the north-eastern city of Maiduguri as he jives and gesticulates to a beat that only he can hear.

Video journalists: Stephanie Hegarty and Vladimir Hernandez.
