Petroleum Marketers Clash with Task Force in Warri


Monday Osayande in Warri

Members of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) and Delta State Task Force on Illegality Monitoring on Monday clashed in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State

The fierce fight between the monitoring team under the Office of the Executive Assistant
the Governor on Security Matters and IPMAN would have resulted in a calamity but for the immediate intervention of the Police.

The incident took place when the IPMAN members resisted an attempt by the Task Force to force them to dispense fuel at Government regulated price of N86.50k questioning the authenticity of the Task Force.

THIS DAY learnt that the Divisional Police Office of Aladja Division, CSP Jonathan Acha; and the Executive Assistance to the Governor on Security, Amb. Godwin Okporoko were called to wade into the matter to resolve the issue.
