After few days of unprecedented chaos and riots that sprung up across Nigeria following the recent #EndSARS protests, people are now reportedly desperate to buy and hoard fuel.

Reports reaching us explains that many filling stations in Abuja are still shut as oil marketers are being careful to no get attacked by hoodlums who have allegedly hijacked the initially peaceful #EndSARS protest. In the past few days, there have been several reports of some miscreants causing havoc across the nation by looting private businesses under the guise of protests.

This recent turnout of events has reportedly caused panic among oil marketers and motorists in Abuja. Some commuters and motorists are allegedly rushing to buy and hoard fuel out of fear while some oil marketers have refused to re-open their filling stations to avoid being attacked.

As of the time of writing these report, seven different filling stations located along Kubwa expressway are reportedly closed while NNPC stations and few others are the only ones selling fuel to customers. Everywhere is so “tensed up” that armed policemen had to be positioned in the NNPC station as well as the other opened filling stations just to reduce the panic.
