The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation has pointed accusing fingers at four importers following the circulation of bad fuel across the country.
Recall that The News Beam had earlier reported that some Nigerian cities are currently witnessing scarcity of fuel with long queues returning to petrol stations..
This scarcity is said to be propelled by NNPC’s move to seize the circulation fuel in a bid to stop the sale of adulterated fuel across the country.
