DPR seals 6 petrol stations in Ogun for selling above N86.50

The Department of Petroleum Resources and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Thursday sealed six petrol stations in Ogun State for selling petrol above the official pump price of N86.50 and for hoarding the fuel.

The affected fuel stations are Amour Petroleum, Saquad Oil, Rab Engineering, Arolat, SAF petroleum and Muyad Nigeria Ltd.

The public relations officer of the civil defence corps, Kareem Olanrewaju, told journalists that the exercise was borne out of tip-offs and outcry by members of the public.

He said the stations would only be reopened when they revert to the approved price.

Mr. Olanrewaju said the team visited at least 15 filling stations, and sealed six while two stations were compelled to dispense freely to motorists and residents.

“It is not only NSCDC that is in it; we are out with the DPR and that gives us the full hammer in accordance with the authority given by the federal government to come out and act together,” he said.

The NSCDC spokesman said the exercise would not be restricted to Abeokuta metropolis as “we will storm other parts too”.

“They should be wary of this exercise and do the needful. It is either they sell at normal price or risk their filling stations being sealed or their product dispensed freely.

“We will move to other parts of the state soon but it won’t be made public; we’ll just go there unexpectedly as we did today,” he added.
