Fuel scarcity imminent as IPMAN moves to shut down filling stations


The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has revealed that plans are underway to shut down all filling stations across the country.

IPMAN warned it might also cut down supplies from Tuesday should the Federal Government and Inspector General of Police fail to address alleged illegalities perpetrated by the Police Force, The Nation reports.

National Public Relation Officer, (PRO) of IPMAN, Yakubu Suleiman, said these on Sunday in a chat with reporters in Jos.

Some police officers last Friday were alleged to have invaded IPMAN National Secretariat for some unstated reasons.

Suleiman described the invasion as an illegal clampdown over alleged sponsorship by some impostors parading themselves as executives of IPMAN.

He said aggrieved members and officials at State, zonal and depot levels have met and resolved to shut down filling stations over the incident.
