The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers has denied ordering the shut down of fuel stations across the country.
NUPENG made this known in a statement signed by its National President and General Secretary, Williams Akporeha and Olamide Afolabi on Saturday and commended the ongoing #EndSARS protests in the country.
“NUPENG stands with Nigerian youths against Police brutality and calls for immediate and far-reaching Police reforms as our members are as well victims of Police brutality and abuses through extortion, detention, harassment and intimidation nationwide.
“Meanwhile, no organ of our Union has ordered shutting down of fuel stations or oil installations.
“We sincerely empathize with all victims of police brutality including our members across the country and we peacefully join all well-meaning Nigerians to say police brutality must stop,” the statement read.
