Kano/Jigawa operations arm of the Department of Petroleum Resources has revealed that it has succeeded in retrieving five trucks containing 225 000 liters of fuel meant to be dispensed in the state but was diverted to an unknown destination.


DPR team leader Kano/Jigawa operations, Paul Jehzi revealed this while displaying the returned trucks at the state’s NNPC headquarters.

According to him, the success recorded was as a result of the department’s strengthened efforts to ensure conformity to laid down rules in an attempt to douse the lingering fuel scarcity in the states.

He further stated that, the erring independent marketer will face the penalty spelt for the offence and that DPR will ensure dispensing of the fuel in accordance to law at the official rate of N145 per litre.
