We can possibly stop you when we see you leaving Nigeria.
“It’s not possible for anyone to move a tanker out of Nigeria; it is unimaginable. Ilara is a fringe zone and there are authorized filling stations. On the off chance that they are taking tankers to these filling stations, we don’t have the ability to reallocate their items, we can just act at a point they’re removing it from Nigeria.
“The other time, when we were so exacting on them, they said we prevented oil based goods from getting to Ilara and Imeko. Presently we have enabled them to take their fuel to Ilara and Imeko, in those filling stations that are authorized, they said we are enabling it to be carried out of Nigeria. Which one do we pursue? You have to know how the divisions are, among Ilara and Benin Republic.”
