"The queues are as a result of sabotage. Some people rather than sell products send them into interlands where they can sell at ridiculous prices and so you are having this price distortions where people are making a lot of money, some are internal and some are external but a lot of it is marketers trying to make quick returns on their investments wrongly," the Petroleum Minister said.
The development follows after the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) reported that 1,194 trucks had been distributed nationwide.
