Abuja - Officials from the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have sealed five petrol service stations in Osogbo for selling the commodity at an inflated price.

It was reported the outlets in the Osun State capitalwere selling above the price of N145 per litre recently set by government.

According to the state commandant of NSCDC, Ayodele Phillips, the fuel service stations were also sealed for hoarding.

He said the check would be carried out regularly to regulate the marketers and keep them in check.

“So far, five fuel stations have been sanctioned and their fuel stations sealed by the DPR. If the NSCDC keeps up to its word on routine check, a moderate level of compliance is expected to be adhered to by the fuel marketers,” Phillips said.

This publication established that a delegation DPR, NSCDC and other officials visited petrol service stations to ascertain the level of compliance with government directives on the price of the commodity.

The federal government last week announced a new price band confident it would address the crisis in the sector that had led to the scarcity of petrol.
