A gas filling station, Mohkah Gas, was also sealed by the DPR for operating without a licence.

The state Controller of DPR, Mr Amos Jokodola, who led the surveillance team, said the exercise was to ensure that consumers were not short-changed by unscrupulous fuel station operators, especially during this festive period.

Jokodola warned fuel station operators against hoarding and other sharp practices that might lead to artificial scarcity.

He also advised motorists not to engage in panic buying, explaining that the DPR had taken steps to ensure adequate supply of petroleum products during the festive period and beyond.

” Presently, we have four million litres of petroleum motor spirit (PMS), 140 metric tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and one million litres of diesel available in the state,” the controller said.
