Olaonipekun said that DPR recently sealed five petrol stations suspected to be hoarding the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS).

“We noticed that there ought not to be scarcity, especially with quantity of products being pushed out, so we intensified surveillance.

“We suspected that the stations were hoarding products, they refused to sell, and refused our efforts to dip into their tanks,” he said.
