The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), for Oyo and Osun states has sealed-off no fewer than fifty fuel stations in Ibadan and environs for hoarding and selling the product above government approved eighty-seven naira per litre.
A filling station allegedly belonging to a former senator from Oke Ogun part of the state was among those sealed off by the DPR.
Another one belonging to a former governor in Ogbomosho, which was sealed off few weeks back, was also one of those compelled to reverse its sales to government approved price during the inspection.
The affected filling stations were selling the product between one hundred and twenty naira and one hundred and fifty naira per litre as at last week.
Same could be said of kerosene which now sells between ninety-five naira and one hundred naira per litre.
