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.
