The vehicle and the products are currently in custody pending further investigations.

Speaking with the media, the Upper West Regional Manager of the NPA, Mr. Bashiru Natogma, cautioned petroleum consumers to desist from buying such smuggled petroleum products.

He said the only facilities authorized to sell petroleum products are the fuel filling stations.

Mr Natogma urged commercial transport owners to caution their drivers against using their vehicles in transporting such illicit products “because it is illegal and also puts the lives of the public at risk.”
