The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Sokoto state branch has suspended one of its members for violating the executive order, banning sale of petrol in jerrycans in the state.

Daily Trust reported that, the anti-vandal unit of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps had last Friday arrested two persons with over 100 jerrycans filled with the commodity at Anasiyya filling station, More in Sokoto North local government area.

IPMAN’s Chairman in the state, Alhaji Abubakar Usman while addressing their members during an emergency meeting on Sunday, said they had already written to the Gusau NNPC depot, asking them not to sell fuel to erring members.

“We know this measure is affecting our business but it is taken for the benefit of all of us.

“We have members who could not run their businesses and even abandoned their filling station because of banditry,” he said

He, however, promised to hand over any of its members that violated the order to the relevant security agency in addition to taking a severe disciplinary action against him.

In his remarks, the state Commissioner of Commerce and Industry, Bashir Gidado noted that a mobile court would be going round to ensure compliance to the executive order by their members.

“Anyone found wanting would be summarily tried and sentenced by the court,”he said.

Gidado however, said that the measures so far taken against bandits were yielding positive results in the state.
