The Jigawa State Task Force on Petroleum products has shut down five filling stations for tampering with their metres and engaging in some activities to shortchange customers.
The Taskforce Chairman, Colonel Muhammad Alhassan (Rtd) stated this while briefing newsmen after inspecting some filling stations at Kiyawa, Gumel, and Jahun local government areas.
He said the inspection is to check the activities of the filling stations to ensure they abide by the laid down rules.
Alhassan explained that the Taskforce has warned more than thirty (30) filling stations and shut down five (5) for engaging in dubious activities.
“Some of the filling stations do not have Sarafin Gauge and do not have standard measuring gauge to enable them to know the functionality of their pumps,” he said.
He said the committee will continue to inspect other filling stations and expose any filling station found to be engaged in tampering with metres to shortchange customers.
He noted that no filling station would be spared if found wanting.
