Worried by the ongoing nationwide fuel scarcity, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has implored the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Economic and the Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to help arrest marketers hoarding and diverting petroleum products.
The engagement of the security agencies is also meant to assist the corporation in the monitoring of fuel truck-out to retail outlets nationwide.
In a statement signed by NNPC spokesperson, Mr. Ohi Alegbe, the corporation explained that it was doing everything possible to normalise the fuel supply and distribution situation.
The Managing Director, Pipelines and Products Marketing Company, Mrs. Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue, explained that the DSS and EFCC operatives had been mobilised to bring to book any marketer involved in sabotaging the efforts of the Federal Government in making petroleum products available to motorists across the country.
She said: “We have invited the EFCC and DSS to join us in this campaign of monitoring the movement of petroleum products and they have our mandate to sanction any errant marketer. Enough is enough.”
