The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has warned petroleum products consumers across the country against mishandling of products as dry season sets in.
The Corporation gave the warning in a statement signed by its spokesman, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, in Abuja, on Wednesday.
He said that experience had shown that commuters stocked petroleum products at home or moved about with them in their vehicle boots at this period of the year, exposing themselves and others to serious dangers.
He recalled the incident involving a car laden with fuel which burst into flames while in motion last week at Umuode community, Osisioma Ngwa Local Government Area of Abia State.
Ughamadu noted that the incident exemplified the danger of transporting inflammable petroleum products in the vehicle not made for such purpose.
He also advised communities hosting NNPC facilities to refrain from taping products from NNPC pipelines or engaging in activities that might lead to spill of petroleum products.
“Individuals involved in such an act may suffer untold casualties,” he said.
