Earlier on Monday, police stations in Benin were set ablaze as protesters.
The protesters also vented their anger on the Benin office of Daar Communication Limited, operators of Africa Independent Television and Ray Power radio.
The riot in Benin led the governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki to order an indefinite 24-hour curfew beginning at 4pm today.
