The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr. Solomon Arase, has directed all police formations in the country to arrest any fuel marketers found hoarding or diverting petroleum products.
A statement issued in Abuja by Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olabisi Kolawole, reads: “Further to the Nigeria Police Force directives on the activities of unscrupulous elements who engage in illegal sale of petroleum products, there is need to make some clarification that the directive was specifically targeted at those who are involved in hoarding and diverting the petroleum products.
“However, those with genuine intention to use the products for their legal and genuine business are allowed to purchase the products.
“The IGP emphasized that no stone will be left unturned by the Police to checkmate those with the attitude of causing discomfort to the innocent citizens in the country.”
