The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has shut down an unregistered company for producing adulterated car lubricants in Oyo State.
NSCDC’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr Babawale Afolabi, said this is in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.
Afolabi said the sealing of the production site was carried out by the NSCDC Commandant General’s Special Intelligence Squad following an intelligence tip-off.
He said the squad was informed of the operations of an illegal auto lubricants manufacturing company that specialised in massive production of fake Automated Transmission Fluid (ATF).
“The production location is very remote and deceptive because the so called company was located inside a residential house, which does not meet the industrial standard.
“This is where the production, packaging and sales as established brand lubricants to unsuspecting oil users takes place,” he said.
