The Itori Unit Command of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ogun, has warned motorists and other Nigerians to stop buying fuel on roadsides to prevent damaging vehicles and other properties.
Mr. Shamaki Yerima, The Unit Commander, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Ota, Ogun.
He said that the advice had become necessary as fuel purchased from the roadsides might be adulterated.
The commander also cautioned against carrying fuel in vehicles to avoid fire.
“We are appealing to motorists not to engage in panic-buying because of the inherent dangers.
“In addition, the FRSC enjoins them to be careful, patient, and refrain from speeding that could lead to road accidents.”
