The Niger State Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Joachin Okafor, has said that the corps will clamp down on filling stations selling fake and adulterated petrol.
Okafor disclosed this when the state’s Commissioner for Communications Technology and Digital Economy, Suleiman Isah, paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Minna.
He said petrol from one of the filling stations had been confirmed to be adulterated through laboratory tests by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), adding that a certificate of laboratory tests had been issued to the corps to enable it prosecute the suspects.
Mr Okafor noted that there had been complaints from motorists who claimed that their vehicles had broken down after buying fuel from the suspected filling stations, saying that owners of the affected filling stations would be made to face the law after completion of investigation.
