The Department of Petroleum Resources on Friday said it had sanctioned 10 petrol filling stations in Zamfara for selling fuel above official pump price.
The Acting Controller of the department in Gusau, Saleh Audu, told newsmen in Gusau.
Audu said DPR had visited 35 filling stations across the state in the past one week and discovered that 10 out of the stations were selling fuel above N145 per litre.
He said three other stations were penalised for violating rules and regulations of the department. He advised motorists to support the department to enable it to carry out its duty effectively.
