Fuel scarcity: Civil Defence to begin the arrest of black marketers

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps says it has begun the arrest of illegal oil marketers in the wake of the lingering fuel scarcity in the country.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Corps spokesperson, Emmanuel Okeh, on Friday in Abuja.

He said the Commandant-General of the Corps,  Ade Abolurin, had directed the corps Anti-Vandal Squad to start the raid and arrest all illegal oil dealers and black marketers in line with the NSCDC’s mandate.
“The Controller-General has directed that all miscreants and those involved in hoarding of the product thereby causing artificial scarcity in order to sell at exorbitant prices should be arrested and prosecuted accordingly,” the statement said.
He said the exercise was aimed at ensuring sanity and availability of the product at all filling stations.
I wonder if arresting the black marketers will help put an end to the fuel scarcity well they should go ahead if they feel it will.
