Executive members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Tuesday raided petrol filling stations in Delta and arrested station attendants who violated the federal government approved petrol dispensing price of N145.

The executive members led by the national president of the association, Chinonso Obasi, compelled the petrol station attendants to sell at the approved pump price of N145 by the federal government of Nigeria.

The raid, which swept through many filling stations in Asaba, the state capital, began at the Rainoil filling station opposite the state legislative complex where heavy drama ensued, a development which was fueled by the recalcitrant attitude of the station manager and his station attendants.

As soon as the NANS team stormed the filling station, the attendants, on discovering the team was after team with the media, took to their heels and fled the station leaving their customers stranded.

The attendants also put off the engine so as to prevent the NANS leaders from dispensing their fuel to customers who had queued up for the fuel.

On seeing the engine had been put off, one of the attendants was told to put on the engine, but rather than complying, he took to his heel and attempted to flee from the NANS team.

However, the team chased him, brought him and compelled him to put on the engine and dispense fuel to the customers at the federal government approved price of N145 against N160 which Rainoil was dispensing.

The manager of the station, whose name could not be ascertained, proved practically difficult to NANS, an action that would have compelled NANS excutives to manhandle him but later obliged to the directive of NANS to dispense fuel at N145.

He was asked to explain why his station violated the federal government approved price but rather than explain, he attempted shunning NANS but on seeing the stern looking NANS exectuves, he subpedaled.

As the drama continued, a call was placed to the state police headquarters which quickly drafted some officers to the station who said the team should have informed them before embarking on the exercise but NANS president told the officers that he had informed the Inspector General of police, Ibrahim Idris, before embarking on the raid.

The team thereafter moved to Ascon filling station. At the station, it was discovered that N145 was displayed on the screen but the attendants, rather than collect the amount displayed on the screen, would collect N200 per liter from customers.

Also, at Fynefield which is a subsidiary of Rainoil, the attendants also put off the engine as soon as the team stormed the station.

After so much argument to compel the attendants to dispense the fuel at N145 with the station not being available, three attendants were arrested and taken to the state headquarters of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense (NSCDC).

NANS president, Chinonso Obasi, said the raid became necessary as students all over Nigeria were passing through hard time as transport fare had gone so high across the country.

He said it was fraudulent for petrol stations to sell beyond the federal government approved pump price across the nation. He said it was inhuman, ungodly and against the wellbeing of the Nigerian people.

He said Nigerian students ahd resolved that it was time to stop being fooled by petroleum marketers across the nation, stressing that anything above N145 was unacceptable to students, describing it as fraudulent.

Obasi said Nigerian students will resist any attempt to continue to sell beyond N145, insisitng that as far as the federal government had fixed the price, it was unacceptable to the association to sell beyond the fixed price.

He commended North West filling station for selling at N145, thereby alleviating the pains of travelers through the Onitsha-Benin expressway.
