According to eyewitnesses, the man identified as an artisan, told everyone that cared to listen that he would rather die than go away without fuel as the present hardship in the country occasioned by fuel scarcity, incessant electricity blackout and the economic turn down has caused his family to suffer untold hardship as he has not been able to fend for them.

The young man had reportedly waited patiently in a very long queue only for the announcement to come that fuel will not be sold in kegs and he went into an overdrive and stripped naked in protest.

Even a team of policemen filling station could not stop the man as he screamed at the top of his voice and rolled on the ground and it was even the police officers that had to beg the attendants to sell fuel to the man.
