The Nigeria Customs Service have intercepted two tankers laden with poorly produced 80, 055 liters of Automotive Gas Oil, popularly called diesel.
In Ijebu-Ode area of Ogun State, the Acting Customs Area Controller in charge of the Federal Operations Unit, Zone A, Hussein Ejibunnu, disclosed this while handing over the products to the officials of Nigeria Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Agency.
Ejibunnu said that the drivers of the trucks escaped upon sighting Customs’ officers on patrol.
“After a careful study of the documents being used to convey the product and analyses of samples , it was discovered that the papers were forged and the diesel was of poor standards.”
He said the NCS wrote to NMDPRA to verify the status of the products and the authenticity of documents found in the vehicles, but they were both confirmed to be fake.
Giving a breakdown of the seizures and particulars of means of conveyance, the acting controller said one of the tankers with registration number DBT 599 XA was laden with 44,450 liters while the other one with registration number USL 561 ZC had 35,605 liters of the AGO.
