Contrary to speculations on the social media that the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) is planning to shut down fuel stations and oil installations across the country on Monday, the Union has debunked the claims.
In a statement signed by its National President, Comrade Williams Eniredonana Akporeha and General Secretary, Comrade Olawale Afolabi, NUPENG said, no organ of the Union has ordered shutting down of fuel stations or oil installations.
The statement in parts said, “NUPENG stands with Nigerian youths against Police brutality and call 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 said.
