The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, has warned motorists against panic buying of its products, assuring that there is enough fuel on ground.

Suleiman Yakubu, IPMAN National Public Relations Officer, said that the long queues in some parts of Abuja were due to fear of attacks by hoodlums.

Mr Yakubu told the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Abuja that, “there is no fuel scarcity; just that some fuel station owners are scared of their property being damaged’’.

“People should not fear and do panic buying as there is enough fuel on ground.”

Mr Yakubu also advised the masses to shun violence and embrace peace for a better economy.

A taxi driver, who identified himself as Abdullah Hamza, said he had to buy fuel to be able to do his business in case there was scarcity.

“I pray that the government arrest these hoodlums disturbing the peace of the nation.
