Fuel scarcity: FG seals over 62 petrol stations, arrests seven

The Federal Government, through the Department of Petroleum Resources, has sealed over 62 petrol stations across the country.

The petrol stations were shut down due to varying acts of malpractices, including selling the Premium Motor Spirit, otherwise known as petrol, far above the N145 official price.

Since fuel scarcity started nationwide some days before Christmas, several filling stations had started selling fuel as high as N300 per litre.

Speaking to one of PUNCH correspondents, the Head of Operations, DPR, Kwara State, Mr. Oyedele Ibitayo, said the agency had sealed no fewer than 10 petrol stations in the state for varying acts of malpractices and infractions since the fuel crisis started.
