Ecstatic supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have occupied the streets in Benin City, the state capital celebrating the victory of Godwin Obaseki who defeated Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu in the governorship election.
The supporters are seen at Ramat Park roundabout, King Square, Ring Road, and the state Assembly Complex in wild jubilation.
The jubilation led to traffic build-up in the area but armed security personnel was on the ground to maintain law and order in the area.
Passengers and passers-by are also not left out of the celebration.
