Diversion of petroleum products: DPR seals 3 petrol filling stations in Kaduna

Kaduna- The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) on Tuesday said it had sealed three petrol filling stations for product diversion in Kaduna.

Head, Public Affairs of DPR, Kaduna, Rabiu Bello, announced this to newsmen during an inspection of filling stations in Kaduna

“Last week, we sealed about three filling stations for diversion and were made to return the product diverted,” he said.

Bello said about 94 trucks of PMS had been received for only Kaduna and its environs alone adding, “we are currently going round all filling stations that have received the products.

“Long queues are expected because the products are gradually coming from Lagos and the refinery in Kaduna is not fully operational because of ongoing maintenance work.

“As Christmas approaches, more trucks are expected and very soon, all queues in Kaduna will disappear,” he assured.

He warned that any station found hoarding the product would face the wrath of the law.

He debunked accusation against the DPR of alleged selective inspection and monitoring of filling stations in Nigeria.

“This allegation is not true because any station that discharges product, DPR is there to confirm that particular product. The station found to divert its products are always sanctioned.

He advised independent marketers against diversion of bridged products and sales above pump price.

“Any irregularities by marketers will lead to sealing of that station indefinitely,” he warned.(NAN)
