Scarcity of petroleum product has hit some parts of Lagos and Ogun states as many filling stations visited have no products, New Telegraph can report.

In the Ojodu axis of Lagos, only NNPC station was seen selling fuel as other petrol stations were locked. Also, in Akute area of Ogun state, most petrol stations were shut.

Already, cost of transportation has doubled in the areas visited by our reporter.

Recall that the Independent Petroleum Markers Association of Nigeria, Lagos State chapter, had threatened to shut down over 900 filling stations in Lagos and Ogun following NNPC’s  undersupply of Premium Motor Spirit to its members.

IPMAN alleged that the NNPC was not only undersupplying its members with PMS, it was also frustrating them by reneging on the bulk purchase agreement it signed with its members to supply the product to them at N133.28k per litre.
