DPR seals two filling stations in Jos fuel over diversion

05 March 2014, 09:11

Jos - The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) on Tuesday sealed two filling stations in Jos, Plateau, for diversion of products.

The two stations were NIPCO at Bauchi Ring Road and E. O. Eze and Brothers in Rukuba.

Shehu Yusuf, Head, Retails, Outlets and Marketing of the department of DPR, said the premises of the stations were sealed as deterrent to other marketers indulging in the act and to save motorists the agony of sourcing for petrol.

Yusuf said that 19 articulated vehicles loaded with petrol were dispatched to the Plateau on Tuesday.

Of these, he said, six trucks were for Bauchi and Nasarawa States, while the rest were to discharge in Plateau.

He said that the current situation would be ameliorated by steady supply of the product to the state.

According to him five of the trucks are allocated to the NNPC mega station and its affiliate stations in Jos.

He said that the department was working hard to ensure that the fuel supply situation was normalised in the state.
