The Department of Petroleum Resources on Friday said it had sanctioned 10 petrol filling stations in Zamfara for selling fuel above official pump price.
Audu said DPR had visited 35 filling stations across the state in the past one week and discovered that 10 out of the stations were selling fuel above N145 per litre.
"Members of the public should assist us with information on malpractices by owners of filling stations that sell fuel above official pump price, under dispensation, hoarding, and diversion, among others."
The Chairman, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, Gusau Depot Branch, Alhaji Sirajo Kamba, however, said that the increase in pump price followed a unilateral decision by private depots to increase the price of the commodity.
"Members of IPMAN are law-abiding, we are ready to cooperate with the government and other stakeholders to ensure that fuel supply has improved."
