“We also auctioned the product to motorists before the stations were sealed off.

“The operators of the stations still have to pay the imposed fine to deter them from selling above the pump price.
“We hope it will send some lessons to erring marketers,” he said.

Oseni said that the Federal Government would soon bring in more fuel to the state through the major marketers. (NAN)
