Adulterated kerosene in circulation in Borno, NSCDC warns

The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, on Sunday in Maiduguri alerted Borno residents that kerosene mixed with petrol is currently in circulation in the state.

The Borno NSCDC Commandant, Ibrahim Abdullahi, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.

The commandant said that some patriotic citizens alerted the command on the circulation of the adulterated commodity.

“We have been receiving distress calls from the public.

“A man from Maduganari reported that his house was almost gutted by fire because he used adulterated kerosene.

“We are surprised how they mixed kerosene and petrol, We don’t know whether it is another ploy by Boko Haram to cause havoc,” he said.

He said the command would leave no stone unturned to apprehend whoever was responsible for the act, and urged the public to report any form of nefarious activities to the law enforcement agencies.

Kerosene is a common commodity used in stoves for cooking in Borno and other Nigerian states.
