The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) says it has recovered 114,000 litres of petrol diverted by three filling stations in Yola, Adamawa.
The DPR controller of operations in Adamawa and Taraba States, Musa Akenn, confirmed this to journalists on Friday in Yola.
Mr. Akenn said the recovered product was sold to motorists at official pump price of N86. 50.
Speaking on the development, the secretary of the state chapter of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, Ibrahim Gayus, admonished its members to desist from the act.
Mr. Gayus urged members of the association to support the federal government’s efforts to ensure steady supply of the product nationwide.
