DPR seals four filling stations in Owo

The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) says it has sealed four filling stations in Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State for hoarding fuel and selling above pump price.

The Controller of DPR in-charge of Ondo and Ekiti,  Mr Adewale Oseni, told newsmen on Friday in Owo that the operation was carried out late Thursday night and Friday morning.
“We also auctioned the product to motorists before the stations were sealed off.
“The operators of the stations still have to pay the imposed fine to deter them from selling above the pump price.
“We hope it will send some lessons to erring marketers,” he said.
Oseni said that the Federal Government would soon bring in more fuel to the state through the major marketers.
