Lagosians awoke on Monday to another week of severe fuel shortage

Lagosians awoke on Monday to another week of severe fuel shortage as more gas stations were locked up and declared to be out of fuel.

However, the few distribution stations, particularly the NNPC retail shops, are being accused of hoarding fuel and denying sales to drivers who have been in line since 5 a.m.

Many drivers vented their rage at a NNPC retail location on Ogunnusi Road, Ojodu-Berger, across from Omole-1 gate, over the station’s unwillingness to sell fuel despite having the commodity on hand.

This morning, drivers were informed that although fuel dispensing typically begins at 7 a.m., it will not begin until 10:00.

According to a driver who spoke with Daily Trust, the gas station immediately stopped selling fuel on Sunday because it was getting boisterous.

“On the manager’s orders, they abruptly ceased selling, and this was due to the security guard’s failure to execute his job of maintaining order. Those of us who were on duty did not cause this. After much pleading, they finally agreed to let us return by Monday morning at 6:00 am.
