The North West Zone of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has dispensed over 2,000 litres of petrol free to motorists in Kaduna.

Ibrahim Chiroma, Chairman of the DPR joint task force, said the fuel was found hoarded at SUL Nigeria Limited filling station at Rigachikun.

According to him, the marketer engages in selling the product to black market operators late at night and has been warned several times to no avail.

Chiroma said the joint task force with members drawn from all security agencies had no option than to confiscate the commodity and dispense it free to motorists.

He said the task force may dismantle the station’s service pumps as a stiffer sanction to serve as deterrent to other petroleum  marketers.

Chiroma stressed that the measure was part of efforts to end the worsening fuel crises in the country.

The DPR had earlier sold off 17,700 litres of petrol to motorists in Zaria and Kaduna found hoarded in three filling stations.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
