The Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, has sealed three petrol stations in Maiduguri for sharp practices.

The offences committed by the petrol stations include failure to dispense fuel, pricing and under-dispensing, among others.

Ali Zoaka, the zonal coordinator, DPR Maiduguri office, who led a monitoring team in Maiduguri on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, warned that the department would no longer allow impunity by petroleum marketers in the state to continue.

He said it was so unfortunate that some fuel stations were reaping off customers and it left them with no other options but to get them sealed.

He said the sealed stations deliberately refused to dispense the product to customers and some adjusted their pump to dispense below the standard level.

Zoaka said: “They have adjusted their pumps and as such under-dispensed the product. Anybody who buys fuel from these stations will get below the quantity of petrol he or she buys.”
