The DPR Zonal Operations Controller, Isa Tafida, stated this at a press conference in Kaduna recently. The DPR official noted that the department would not tolerate any marketer out to sabotage its efforts by way of diverting petrol to neighbouring countries.

He added that any unscrupulous marketer caught diverting petroleum products to neighbouring African countries such as Chad, Niger and Republic of Benin, would be severely sanctioned.
