Paul Onuachu came in as a substitute to give Nigeria a late match winner for the Super Eagles to qualify in style to the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon.
Benin were just seconds away from also qualifying for the AFCON, only for the Genk striker to head home off a goalmouth scramble.
The Squirrels will now have to seal qualification in Sierra Leone, who drew 0-0 in Lesotho earlier today.
Nigeria now have an unassailable 11 points to win the group before Tuesday’s final qualifier in Lagos against Lesotho.
The Eagles dominated this West African derby from start to finish and would have won it much earlier but for ill luck and some great goalkeeping by Saturnin Allagbe.
