NSCDC commences surveillance of petrol stations in Nasarawa State

Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has commenced periodic surveillance of petrol stations in Nasarawa State to ensure the stations adhered to standard safety measures to avoid another gas explosion.

It would be recalled that a gas station in Lafia was razed on September 10 when a tanker offloading liquefied gas had a leakage and went up in flames.

The Commandant of NSCDC in Nasarawa State, Mohammed Mahmud-Fari, told newsmen in Lafia that the surveillance of petrol stations would ensure that laws and regulations laid down on how petrol stations would be run were strictly adhered to.

He added that the surveillance would ensure that owners of petrol stations rent spaces in their vicinity
