The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has sealed six filling stations in Ilorin, capital of Kwara state, and Ajase- Ipo in Irepodun local government area of the state for hoarding fuel and other sundry offences.
The sealed stations are Golden Mother Filling Station, Agbabiaka, Ilorin, Korrect Petroleum, Agbabiaka, Ilorin, Haflum Filling Station, Baboko, Ilorin, Lakeside Filling Station, Lagos Road, Ilorin, NNPC Retail Station, Okoolowo, Ilorin and Alhaji M. Oyetunji Filling Station, Ajase-Ipo.
The DPR’s Head of Operations in the state, Engineer Oyedele Ibitayo said the stations were found culpable for various infractions ranging from diversion of fuel, overpricing, under dispensing to hoarding of petroleum products.
Ibitayo, though admitted that fuel supply to the state had been low in the past two weeks, insisted that whatever comes in must be properly dispensed by the marketers.
He explained that the state which received 39 trucks of petroleum products daily now receives between 12 and 19 trucks daily.
He maintained that the erring stations would be made to pay penalties and sign undertaking.
Ibitayo said his office would continue to monitor the situation and deal with erring filling stations in the state.
