NNPC filling station shut for diverting fuel

29 April 2016, 21:41

Calabar - The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has sealed the NNPC filling station in Akamkpa Local Government Area of Cross River for allegedly diverting fuel to Cameroon.

Bassey Nkanga, the Operation Controller of DPR for Akwa Ibom and Cross River, said on Thursday that an NNPC truck conveying 40 000 litres was intercepted by DPR personnel on surveillance exercise.

Nkanga said the truck was already heading to Bakassi Local Government Area from where it would enter Cameroon through Ikang border before the interception.

He said the truck was taken to the NNPC mega station in Calabar where the product was discharged for sale.

Minister of State for Petroleum Resources and NNPC Group Managing Directo, Ibe Kachikwu, had earlier said fuel scarcity has persisted because trucks conveying the product were being diverted to Cameroon and Chad.
