Panic in Lagos, Abuja As Petrol Scarcity Looms

Queues returned to petrol stations in parts of Lagos yesterday

The fear of scarcity spread across the metropolis.

In Abuja, the queues, which have lingered for some days, continued

In both cities, black marketers flooded major highways with petrol in cans, selling to motorists on the roadside.

In Lagos, vehicles lined up at Ajah, Lekki, Victoria Island and the mainland areas in search of premium motor spirit (PMS), otherwise known as petrol.

It was the same situation in Sango-Ota, Mowe, Ibafo and Arepo axis on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway

There were long queues all over Abuja. Very few petrol stations had the product.

Most of the outlets on the Kubwa Expressway were shut.

The few that had the product were packed with vehicles. It was the same in the Nyanya area.

At the city centre, queues created gridlock in parts of Wuse and Garki.
