The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ogun State Command, has warned motorists in the state against indiscriminate parking on the highways and inner roads in a bid to purchase fuel.
Mr. Ahmed Umar, the Sector Commander of FRSC, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Ota, Ogun.
Umar spoke against the backdrop of fuel scarcity due to the removal of subsidy on petrol by the Federal Government.
He said that the warning was necessary to motorists in order not to hinder traffic flow across the state.
“Motorists should be orderly and ensure that they do not form more than two lanes in the process of buying fuel,” the sector commander said.
Umar also cautioned motorists against carrying jerry cans in their vehicles in order not to endanger their lives and others, saying “This is a dangerous act.”
