In a statement by the Command's spokesperson Kehinde Adeleke, the arrested suspects were filling station attendant, supervisor and managers.

The Corps Commandant, Agboola Sunday, according to the statement disclosed that the filling stations had product in their tanks but were not dispensing the product, while motorists queue without hope to get petrol

He added that the suspects upon questioned disclosed that they were waiting for instruction from their headquarters to proceed with dispensing the product.
