The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has sealed off 19 petrol stations in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.

The offence of the sealed stations included overpricing, under-delivery and lack of adequate security apparatus.

A DPR official from the zonal office in Maiduguri, Bala Aminu Musa, said that a task force team commenced the operations since last week.

“The sealed stations would have to pay a fine to the Federal Government account before we lift their ban. In the mean time we would sell off their products at the controlled price.”

Fuel Scarcity had crept into the city in the last three weeks, forcing desperate motorists to buy the product at 150 Naira as against the official 145 Naira per litre.

Long queues have also become visible in the few stations where fuel is available. (Channels TV)
