In light of the present gasoline scarcity and price hike across the country, the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, has ordered all of its members to cease operations in Niger State.

The judgment follows the death of a fuel attendant by Nigerian Air Force soldiers on Monday at the AY Ashafa filling station owing to a quarrel between the officer and the station’s manager.

 

In response to the development, the chairman of the association, Adama Erena, stated that the shutdown is intended to send a message of regret to the authorities rather than to the general public.

 

According to Adama Erena, the boy’s unjust slaughter must not be swept under the rug because justice must be done.

He went on to say that the victim had done nothing wrong to the NAF officer and that his family should be paid for the evil.

HE SAID: “THE SHUTDOWN IS NOT TO SUFFER THE MASSES BUT TO PASS THE MESSAGE OF OUR SADNESS ACROSS TO THE AUTHORITIES.

“THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN LET THIS GO JUST LIKE THAT, JUSTICE MUST TAKE PLACE. THE BOY DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG TO THEM AND HIS FAMILY MUST BE COMPENSATED FOR THIS WICKEDNESS”
