Massive fuel scarcity hits Abuja as black market operators sell one litre for N500

Barely 24 hours after the Federal Government announced that by June fuel subsidy will be removed from all petroleum products, massive fuel scarcity has hit Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.

NaijaOnPoint.com (TNG) reports that the development has led to massive fuel queues along major roads in the FCT as black market operators now sell a litre of fuel for N500.

Along the Abuja-Kaduna-Kubwa expressway, a ten litre jerry can of fuel sells for N5,000 while a 25 litre can goes for N12.500.

Except for Gegu fuelling station that is selling fuel, other private operators along the express seal their gates while the three NNPC outlets are selling as vehicles litter the service lane.
