The short respite felt by petroleum products consumers in parts of the South East has come to an abrupt end.
On account of the disagreement between petroleum marketers and Governor Uzodinma of Imo State over the implementation of a court order, supplies of the product to the South-East has been disrupted, shooting pump price of PMS by over 90per cent.
However, an accord was reportedly reached between the duo and normality seemed to have returned within the area early this week only for this current decision by the marketers to suspend supplies to Enugu and two States.
The marketers announced the suspension of supply, on Friday, in a press statement by its National President, Sanusi Yari, stating that “The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) wish to state with dismay, the attack on Thursday, 16th Sept 2021, by men of Nigeria Police Force at our Secretariat in Enugu Depot against court orders/judgments.”
He added that “Sequel to this ugly development, the NEC of IPMAN has resolved and directed the withdrawal of our services at Enugu loading depot immediately and stop servicing the public at Enugu, Anambra and Ebonyi from tomorrow, Friday, 17th September until the police illegality is reversed.”
