Motorists in Katsina have defied the severe cold condition to sleep in their vehicles overnight to get petrol to buy at filling stations. Daily trust reports.
Our correspondent, who monitored the fuel situation on yesterday, reports that the motorists have decided to sleep in fuel stations to buy the scarce commodity.
Fuel scarcity is biting harder in Katsina and this has
compelled motorists to join long queues for fuel. Out of over 50 filling stations in the state capital and environs, only 10 filling stations were selling petrol.
Military personnel was seen at the various filling stations controlling motorists and irate youths from disrupting the sales. Five-litre petrol that was sold for N1,500 last week, is now being sold at N1,300.
