The Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase has reemphasised his commitment to stop persons who are hoarding fuel across the country.

In a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olabisi Kolawole, the IGP said that no stone will be left unturned by the Police to checkmate those with the attitude of causing discomfort to the innocent citizens in the country.

The statement reads, “Further to the Nigeria Police Force directives on the activities of unscrupulous elements who engage in illegal sale of petroleum products, there is need to make some clarification that the directive was specifically targeted at those who are involved in hoarding and diverting the petroleum products.

However, those with genuine intention to use the products for their legal and genuine business are allowed to purchase the products.
