The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Warri Zonal Office, on Wednesday sealed two petrol stations in Warri and four in Udu Local Government Area of the state for hoarding petroleum products and selling above the official pump price of N87.

DPR surveillance team led by Obukaroro Ovadje, Assistant Zonal Manager, sealed the stations after the surveillance which lasted more than seven hours.

”This filling station dispenses fuel at N140 and also under-dispense at 11.35, as against the normal measurement of 10.0. With that, we have no choice than to compel the manager to dispense to customers for free in line with government directive,” he said.
