Adulterated Fuel: Oando Denies Involvement, Says NNPC's Claims Untrue

Oando Plc, a Nigerian oil company has rejected claims that it imported adulterated Premium Motor Spirit into the country.

The company denied any involvement in the ongoing controversy, describing the claims of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC) as false and untrue.
