A woman has died after she sustained injuries in the post- parliamentary polls violence at the Republic of Benin , medical sources disclosed.

Medical sources confirmed that the woman who had been injured a day before, died while a man was brought to the hospital with a gunshot wound in his back.

The protesters in their hundreds defied Police and soldiers, manning and burning barricades on the streets after the controversial parliamentary polls held without a single opposition candidate.

Hours after initial results showed a record low turnout in Sunday’s election, soldiers and large numbers of police deployed on Wednesday across the economic capital Cotonou.

Supporters of former president Thomas Boni Yayi , who had led calls for a boycott of the ballot, took to the streets.

They erected makeshift barriers of burning tires and chanted slogans against ‘unopposed’ President Patrice Talon.

Gunshots
Protestors also burnt down businesses, hurled stones, and smashed the windows of government buildings.
Police fired tear gas to break up crowds, and protestors tried to throw some canisters back.

On Thursday, they continued protests for a second day.
