NNPC in a statement by its spokesman Ndu Ughamadu on Thursday said the call for caution became necessary following reports that products from vandalized pipelines, or out rightly adulterated products are being sold, leading to unpleasant incidents involving petroleum products consumers in parts of the country.

“When in doubt of the quality of a purchase, consumers are advised to seek assistance from any offices of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), NNPC depots or offices nationwide, as products from NNPC depots are subjected to strict quality control to ensure that they are fit for use,” he said.
