The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, on Sunday, alerted residents of Borno State on the circulation of kerosene mixed with petrol in the state.
The Borno State Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr Ibrahim Abdullahi, stated this in an interview with newsmen in Maiduguri.
According to Abdulahi, some patriotic citizens alerted the command on the circulation of the adulterated commodity.
“We have been receiving distress calls from the public.
“A man from Maduganari reported that his house was almost gutted by fire because he used adulterated kerosene.
“We are surprised how they mixed kerosene and petrol, We don’t know whether it is another ploy by Boko Haram to cause havoc,’’ he said.
Abdulahi however vowed that the command would leave no stone unturned to apprehend whoever was responsible for the act, urging the public to report any form of suspicious activities to law enforcement agencies.
