Massive queues have surfaced at many filling stations in Lagos state as a result of fuel scarcity.
It was gathered that motorists scrambled to fill their tanks as long queues resurfaced in petrol stations.
The scarcity, at a time of a global rise in crude oil prices, shook the nation despite the assurance given by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) that there would be no increase in the ex-depot and pump prices of petrol this month.
Many Nigerians are now asking what the cause of their ordeal was since the NNPC had ruled out increasing rates.
The scarcity followed an earlier move by petrol marketers to disrupt the loading of petroleum products at private depots in Lagos and other parts of the country, in protest against a new payment method.
