😲 Fuel price in Imo state now N400 per litre!

There is a closure of filling stations in Imo state which caused confusion among motorists in the early hours of yesterday, a litre of fuel on Thursday, was sold for N400 as a result of an encounter between a
tanker driver and a member of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), who allegedly shot the tanker driver, along Elele road in Port Harcourt on Wednesday night.
As a way of expressing their disapproval of the incident against the tanker driver, filling stations in Imo State, joined the protest by shutting down operations. A manager of a filling station along Okigwe road in Imo State, disclosed that some who have defied the order from above, sold the product at an exorbitant prize.
The development in major streets of Douglas, Egbu, Okigwe, Onitsha, Port-Harcourt road, reported that not all the filling stations were closed at the time and some who opened for business, did not sell at the pump prize of N145 per litre.
The situation also affected transport fares especially within Owerri metropolis where citizens had to pay twice of what they used to pay . Some who came all the way from the rural areas were stranded, describing it as unexpected and said it negatively affected their budget for the day.
