The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) in Kwara State, on Tuesday, August 4, said it has sealed a filling station in the state for operating without licence.

The Controller of the department in the state, Amos Jokodola, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in llorin.

Jokodola identified the sealed station as JS Jomo, Jebba, Moro Local Government Area.

He said that officials of the department discovered the illegal station during a routine check in the area.

According to him, the owner of the station was unable to produce any genuine papers that qualified the station to dispense fuel.

The controller warned filling stations operating without a licence in other parts of the state to immediately desist from the act or face sanctions.

He also revealed that another fuel station, RMT Gada Petroleum, also in Jebba, had been shut for allegedly selling petrol at N110 per litre against the official pump price of N87 per litre.

He said surveillance and enforcement of N87 per litre to other local government areas of the state was a continuous exercise.
