Nigerians be Warned! Filling stations now sell fuel at midnight to cheat customers – DPR

The Department of Petroleum Resources [DPR],yesterday raised the alarm over the illegal sales of fuel and kerosene from licensed filling stations in the country  at night or odd hours of the day in order to cheat unsuspecting customers.

The regulatory agency  also said in its latest circular made available to our correspondent that some unscrupulous filling station owners are evading inspection of their station by DPR’s monitoring officials because they sell petroleum products above the pump price and are under-dispensing same to customers.

The agency vehemently condemned this act and urged perpetrators of the act to desist from same failing which they would be wielding the big stick.

‘’The public is therefore advised against patronizing such facilities,as doing so would be at their own risk’’

The agency also  raised the alarm over the construction of unapproved  filling stations in the thirty six states of the country,including Abuja

It said  unapproved and illegally constructed petroleum filling stations are used in perpetrating other illegal and criminal activities such as the sale of adulterated petroleum products and under-dispensing  quantities.

The agency further observed proliferation of approved filling stations in the country and warned the public against  patronizing such stations.
