The Imo State Head of Operations of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), under the office of the National Coordinator of Anti Pipeline Vandalism and Product Adulteration, Mr. Henschel C. Nwaozuzu, has sent a petition to the Imo State Commissioner of Police, Taiwo Lakanu, to investigate the alleged unwholesome practices of some independent petroleum marketers in the state.

In the petition, Nwaozuzu urged the officials of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), to step up its duties and sanction the offenders. He alleged that some fuel stations located in Owerri metropolis and environs, sell either above pump price or adulterated products or engage in meter adjustment and racketeering of petroleum products.

The Guardian survey revealed that some stations were dispensing petroleum products at above the stipulated prices.

The State Chairman, Independent Fuel Marketers, Chris Amadi, said the products were purchase and transported at higher costs. (The Guardian)
