The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) in Nasarawa State has sealed 7 filling stations for various offences from January to date.
Alhaji Ahmed Gwaram, the state DPR Comptroller, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia on Tuesday.
According to him, the affected filling stations included two unlicensed filling stations in Awe Local Government Area, while the rest were from other parts of the state.
He said that surveillance teams were deployed to monitor proper fuel dispensing according to the regulated price.
He cautioned marketers against flouting government regulations, and urged them to ensure proper dispensing at regulated price approved by the federal government.
Gwaram also admonished motorists to steer clear of illegal filling stations, and should always patronise those selling unadulterated petroleum products.
“If you buy fuel from a filling station and your car develops any fault from it, you can report the problem to that filling station, but you cannot do that if you buy fuel from the roadside unregistered market,” he said. (NAN)
