Some supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are protesting outside the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Benin City.
The protesters alleged that the results being announced at the Collation centre were altered by the electoral commission officials.
Security officials have formed a barricade outside the INEC office to stall any breakdown of law and order.
INEC announced results of nine out of 18 Local Government Areas with the All Progressives Congress candidate winning in five while the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party has scooped the remaining four Local Government Areas.
The APC won in Owan West, Egor, Igueben, Uhunwomnde and Oredo local government areas, while the PDP polled more votes in Esan West, Orhiomwon, Esan South-East and Esan North-East local government areas.
The announcement was, however, trailed by protests over allegations of change of results by the electoral commission, which has led to barricade being formed by security officials.
The police have dispersed the crowd with tear gas and gun shots.
