The Kaduna State Security Council has unanimously agreed to ban the sale of petroleum products in jerrycans throughout the 23 local government areas of the state.

A statement by Samuel Aruwan Special Assistant to the Governor (Media and Publicity) in Kaduna on Tuesday, said the Council based its decision on legal and security considerations, compounded by the environmental hazard petroleum products in jerrycans can cause.

The statement noted the difficulties imposed by the current petrol scarcity and appealed to the citizens to remain patient.

It assured the public that the State Government is working with the NNPC and other agencies to reduce the hardship associated with the shortages of petroleum products.

According to the statement, “Council also observed that the unsafe handling of petroleum products during periods like this has been associated with fires, destruction and fatal consequences for innocent victims.

“The Council further warned those engaged in sabotage and illegal sale of petroleum products in the State to desist with immediate effect.

“The Security Council also directed the arrest and prosecution of any one found violating the ban, and the outright confiscation of any petroleum products found in their possession.

“Residents of the state are urged to help uphold and enforce the Kaduna State Petroleum Products (Anti-Hoarding and Adulteration) Law of 1992 This law empowers a task force to ensure that petrol is sold in a safe manner, and imposes a financial penalty on violators.”

The State Security Council meeting, which was chaired by Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, had in attendance, the Deputy Governor, Arc. Barnabas Yusuf Bala, representatives of the Army, Air Force, Navy, Police, SSS, Civil Defence, Customs, Immigration, NDLEA, FRSC, chairman Kaduna State Council of Emirs and Chiefs, HRH Alhaji Shehu Idris, Emir of Zazzau, HRH Alhaji Zubairu Jibril Maigwari II, Ameer of Birnin Gwari and HRH Paul Zakka Wyom, Kpop Gwong.
