DPR warns against use of mobile phones in petrol stations



The Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, on Monday warned motorists against using mobile phones in petrol stations.


DPR warned that the usage of mobile phones while refuelling at filling stations could spark off a fire outbreak.


The Osun State’s DPR Operation Manager, Olusegun Daboh gave the warning in Osogbo, the state capital.


Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, Daboh said using mobile phones in filling stations is dangerous because “petrol is highly inflammable’’.


He appealed to motorists to always turn off their car engines before refuelling.


He further warned that marketers operating filling stations with expired license, selling above the regulated pump price and under-dispensing would be sanctioned.


Daboh said any unwholesome practice by petroleum marketers should be reported to the DPR office for appropriate action.
