Fuel scarcity has hit Osun State crippling commercial activities in the state. Some attendants at filling stations in Osogbo, the state capital blamed the scarcity on what they described as a subtle protest by petroleum marketers, who were anticipating a downward review of the pump price of fuel. The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) in Osun, a source said, had since directed its members to stop lifting fuel.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that virtually all filling stations along Gbongan-Osogbo Road, including the NNPC Mega Station had stopped selling fuel since October 6. At the ancient city of Ile-Ife, long queues could be seen at various communities, while filling stations along Ede road were under lock and key. Long queues were also seen at Ilesa, Oke-Ogbo and Ijebu-Ijesa Road.
