The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) on Wednesday said it has sealed four filling stations in Sokoto and Kebbi States for violating operational rules.
Alhaji Mohammed Makera, the Zonal Operation Controller of DPR in Sokoto, made this known to newsmen.
Makera said that the stations were engaged in selling petrol above the official price of N145 per litre and diversion.
The operational controller said that three independent filling stations were sealed in Sokoto and one station sealed in Kebbi.
He said that another filling station owned by a major marketer had since been reopened after a truck load of the product was retrieved.
