“We are able to seal off eleven filling stations in Jalingo.

“Before now we sent out a team that monitored the selling of the product and as well warmed them not to sell above government approved price.

“To our dismay, some of the maketers went ahead and violated the order and that is why we have no option but to sanction them accordingly.

“They must pay fine for violating our rules and that will serve as deterance to many other potential violarors.,’ He said.

When contacted, Alhaji Lukman Mohammed, Chairman of the Independent Petroleum Markers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) Taraba state branch said that the clampdown was unnecessary due to recent increase in depot charges.

He however, said that the union would hold a meeting with the DPR and discuss on how to resolve the impasse
