The Central Zone of Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) has locked down seven petrol filling stations in Yenagoa for allegedly not adjusting to the N125 pump-price.
The youth visited many filling stations in Yenagoa and locked down the affected stations.
Our Correspondent recalls that the Federal Government had reduced the pump price from N145 to N125 per litre to reflect the fall in crude oil prices.
The youth applauded four fuel dealers who had reviewed their prices downwards to reflect the new petrol price.
Mr Kenedy Olorogun, Chairman of IYC, Central Zone, explained that their action was informed by the attitude of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR).
