The leadership of the state-owned oil company in Nigeria, NNPC has discovered a case of massive diversion of fuel by some marketers in the north.
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, yesterday stated that its monitoring team together with security agencies set up to rapidly end remnants of petroleum products supply gaps in parts of the country has discovered 144 trucks that were not streamed by some marketers in Kano.
The NNPC, in a statement in Abuja, said the products were meant to feed Kano and its environs, adding that the resurfaced trucks had been sent to discharge their products at the designated locations.
According to the NNPC, of the 144 trucks discovered, 26 were scheduled for Katsina, while 118 trucks were made to discharge their products in Kano and its environs.
