The regulatory body however warned residents in the state to desist from patronising illegal fuel stations and roadside fuel hawkers popularly known as black marketers.

DPR succeeded in sealing off twenty four filling stations after its unscheduled visits to fuel stations located in Jos Bukuru metropolis.

The Operations Controller in the state, Ceasar Douglas who led the raid said the exercise was in response to the shady deals and many undercover dealings brought to its notice by some concerned citizens.

Douglas added that no fewer than fifty-five petrol stations have been discovered to be operating without licenses in the state and as such, do not comply with the agency’s directives in their mode of operation.

He assured members of the public that it would continuously work round the clock to sanitise the industry of illegal operators.
