Filling stations in Port-Harcourt have shut down operations to protest about the arrest of some tanker drivers and seizure of their vehicles.

The majority of the filling stations were said to have stopped dispensing fuel to motorists and other consumers since midnight on Tuesday after another tanker was said to have been seized by the State Task Force on illegal parking.
