There was tension on Monday in some parts of Lagos as a number of fuel stations were shut over supply disruptions.

When a correspondent visited Ikotun, Akonwonjo Egbeda, Igando axis, it was observed that many fuel outlets were shut. The correspondent disclosed that Mobil filling stations along the Ikotun-Idimu road and the Odo-Eran axis of the Isheri-Igando road were dispending fuel..

While speaking on the development, the National Vice President of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, Mr. Hammed Fashola, blamed the disruption in the supply chain of the product coupled with the public holiday for the development.

Fashola said, “I think there is a little disruption in supply. The Easter holiday from Friday to Monday also added to the situation. I think from Wednesday it will ease off. The holiday is almost four days off; it will have its effect. But I am sure by Wednesday it will start getting better. However, there was little problem with supply even before the holiday. There was a little hiccup in supply, the holiday added to it. I am sure will start getting better after the holiday."
