The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), has deployed its personnel to filling stations in Enugu State to maintain law and order.
This followed the fuel scarcity that has hit the nation as motorists and motorcyclists struggle to buy petrol.
The Corps Commandant in the state, Mr Steve Amoga, made this disclosure to newsmen in Enugu on Tuesday.
Amoga said the NSCDC personnel were deployed to NNPC Mega Filling Stations and major marketers’ filling stations in the state that sell fuel at the pump price of N145 but had to contend with long queues.
“What we have decided to do is to ensure deployment of our personnel to filling stations with long queues in order to ensure that the lines keep flowing.
“Troublemakers are checked from distorting the queues and causing hardship for law-abiding citizens, who have decided to follow the queues diligently,” he said.
