The Department of Petroleum Resources, Abeokuta Field Office, on Thursday gave out petrol for free to motorists again in Abeokuta.
The filling station, Daslap Petrol Station, Olomore, was allegedly caught selling above the official pump price.
The team, led by its Head of Operations, Mr Kasali Akinade, said the action was necessary to make others comply with the law.
“We got a tip-off that this station, Daslap, had fuel but they were selling above the pump price at N200 per litre.
“On getting here, we also had evidences to support the claim.
“When we checked their fuel stock level, we discovered they had 33,000 litres. In order to serve as a deterrent to others, we decided to ask them to give their fuel for free.
We said they should give fuel to 20 motorists and 30 bikes for free,” he said.
