Speaking with BCOS news, the Chairman, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, (IPMAN) Ibadan Depot, Alhaji Bukola Mutiu said the directives to shut down petrol stations was taken due to the victimisation of some of its members by the IGP monitoring team who had embarked on sealing of some stations.
