December 27, 2017
The Commandant of the Corps, Muhammad Mahmoud-Fari, while presenting the suspects to newsmen on Wednesday in Lafia said that they were apprehended for flouting the laws guiding the sale of the product in the state.
Mahmoud-Fari said that the suspects would be charged to court and prosecuted accordingly to serve as a deterrent to others.
He said the command would continue to raid petrol stations engaged in unwholesome practices to ensure that they complied with the law guiding their businesses.
“We shall continue to clampdown on petrol stations selling above the official rates or hoarding the products.
“We will force them to sell to members of the public at the government-approved price of N145 per litre,” Mahmoud-Fari said.
