“They were arrested for violating DPR seal order, operating illegal filling stations and selling above government-approved pump price of N145 per litre.

“Based on DPR letters and requests, we have to fix that day to effect the arrest for possible prosecution of the suspects,” Ayinla said.

He said the pump attendants were arrested at eight filling stations across the state, saying that the corps was working in synergy with the DPR to carry out its statutory mandate.

“Why we involved NSCDC is that there are filling stations that have become very volatile and don’t obey simple government regulations.

“In spite of the seal, some filling stations are still doing normal business. We have to involve the NSCDC to enforce regulations,” he said.

Kingsley-Sundaye said that the department had been carrying out campaigns, using the media to sensitise prospective marketers to obtain approval to operate.
