Lagos Impounds Petroleum Tankers Over Sale Of Diesel In Residential Areas
Yinka Olajoyetan, Lagos 
In swift response to the complaint by some residents of Victoria Island on illegal sales of some petroleum products within the neighborhood, the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) on Monday demonstrated its commitment to environmental safety as it apprehended three tankers engaged in illegal sales of Automated Gas Oil (AGO) product, diesel along Taslim Elias Close, Victoria Island.
The Enforcement exercise carried out by the Lagos State government officials is targeted at bringing to an end illicit diesel sales within residential areas, which is a clear violation of environmental regulations.
The apprehended petroleum  tankers were caught at their illegal sales points, posing potential hazards to the community. LASEPA, in collaboration with relevant authorities, promptly intervened to curtail the activities and mitigate any environmental risks associated with such operations.
The agency therefore encourages residents to report any suspicious or similar illegal activities that may pose environmental risks through its designated channels
