A total of 12 petrol stations have been sealed off in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) for selling petrol above the federal government approved price of N86.50 per litre.

The department said that the action was taken to save the public from unnecessary hardship caused by greed on the part of some petrol dealers in the state.

The petrol stations sealed by the DPR are located on Orom Road, Aka road, Olusegun Obasanjo Way and Ikot Ekpene Road in the capital city.

The Operations Director of Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Eket, Mr Bassey Nkanga, who led the operation, warned dealers to revert to the federal government approved price or face the consequences.

He warned that the DPR remains determined to enforce the government’s directive.

A survey by Channels Television revealed that while the major marketers were selling the product at the approved N86.50 per litre, others were selling it between N150 and N160 per litre.

Many other petrol stations in the state capital have also been sealed off for other offences including operating without licence and diversion of products. (Channels TV)
