In a recent turn of events, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited (NNPCL) has taken swift action against fuel service agents involved in an alarming viral video that showcased under-dispensing of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), commonly known as petrol.

The incident, which garnered significant attention on social media platforms, raised concerns about the integrity of fuel distribution systems and consumer trust in the fuel industry.

The viral video, which quickly gained traction across various online platforms, depicted a fuel service station where attendants were seen manipulating the dispensing meters to provide less fuel than what was paid for by unsuspecting customers. The footage ignited a firestorm of outrage among citizens who felt duped by such unethical practices.

In response to the public outcry and the potential threat to the reputation of the fuel industry, NNPCL swiftly initiated an investigation to uncover the truth behind the video.
