Ibadan - 100 petrol filling stations in Oyo and Osun states have been shut down by the Ibadan field office of the Department of Petroleum Resources for allegedly selling petrol above the official pump price of N87 per litre, Punch reports.

Some of the filling stations shut in Ibadan and Osogbo are Agape Energy, Femson Petroleum, S.T. Akpata Petroleum, Taska Energy Resources, Mallo Petroleum, Hamzat Oil, BK Petroleum, Mubilat Oil and Prolek Oil.
