Fuel tankers bombed in Maiduguri were diverted – NSCDC
|Fuel tankers bombed in Maiduguri were diverted – NSCDC by Editor: 12:00 am On March 4, 2017|
The Borno Command of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), today revealed that the three tankers destroyed by three female suicide bombers in Maiduguri on Friday, carried petrol meant for Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) mega stations.
The Commandant of the Corps, Abdullahi Ibrahim, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Saturday in Maiduguri.
Ibrahim said that the agency’s surveillance anti-vandal team had uncovered that the petrol was meant for NNPC mega stations but was diverted and hidden in a private home on Damboa Road in Maiduguri.
He said that the incident could not have happened if the petrol had been taken to its destination by the petroleum marketers.
“It was unfortunate that some individuals were hell bent in diverting petroleum products to create artificial scarcity in the town.
“We learnt that there is a deliberate plan to create artificial scarcity in the town by hiding the product to make it scarce.
