Following the current fuel scarcity, the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has threatened to seal up any filing station caught selling Premium Motor Spirit, popularly known as petrol above the pump price of N87 per litre.
This was made known in a statement issued on Tuesday.
According to DPR, since the Federal Government had not increased the price of fuel, it is illegal to sell petrol above the stipulated price.
The price remains at 87 Naira per litre.
It further stated that any station caught selling above the stipulated price, will have its licence revoked, the statement read.
The Petroleum Department maintained that there was enough fuel, warning service stations not to sell in jerry-cans for safety reasons, or risk being sealed up.
