The Commandant Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Zamfara State Command, Commandant Muhammad Bello Muazu, has charged all premium motor spirit dealers in the state not to make life difficult for the good people of Zamfara state by hoarding and escalating the pump prices of the petroleum products.
Commandant Muazu gave this charge at the state command headquarters Gusau when he read the riot act to all filling stations and petroleum dealers in Zamfara state, Tuesday.
He said, the Corps had observed with dismay the unwarranted artificial scarcity of petroleum products created by petroleum marketers, sequel to the announcement by President Ahmed Bola Tinubu of the intention to remove subsidy of the petroleum products.
He opined that this is an act of sabotage and attempt to scuttle the smooth take off of the present administration.
He posited that NSCDC is saddled with the responsibility of ensuring free supply of petroleum products to the right destinations without diversion or hoarding, noting that the Corps was ready to unearth any filling station found hoarding or causing artificial scarcity.
Muazu therefore warned all petroleum dealers to desist from making life unbearable for Zamfara state. He reiterated that the Corps will go round to ensure that those found culpable will face the wrath of the law
