The Jigawa Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), on Tuesday said it had set up a special team on enforcement of fuel price.

The Command’s Spokesman, DSC Adamu Abdullahi, disclosed this in Dutse in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

"The Jigawa NSCDC command has set up a special team on enforcement of fuel prices.

"The action followed the Presidential directive for the implementation of price regime on petroleum motor spirit in all filling stations across the country," Abdullahi said.

Abdullahi said that henceforth, the corps would ensure that PMS is sold at N86 at NNPC filling stations and N86.50 in other filling stations.

According to him, all stakeholders were invited for a meeting at the command's office to inform them about the development.

He said that the meeting was attended by officials of National Association of Transport Owners, National Union of Road Transport Workers, Association of Commercial Motorcycles Riders of Nigeria, filling stations managers and owners, and Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria.

The command's spokesman warned people sabotaging government`s efforts toward fuel sufficiency to steer clear of Jigawa, as anyone caught would face the full wrath of the law.
