Fuel scarcity: Workers, travellers stranded in Kaduna

On Monday, fuel scarcity slammed Kaduna State even harder, leaving workers, merchants, and travelers stuck at several bus stations and garages in Kaduna and its surrounds.

According to the reporters, the roadways have been empty, leaving only pedestrians.

Several filling stations were closed, and a long line of automobiles waited for petrol to arrive.

A litre of petrol, which cost N1,000 Naira yesterday (Sunday), now costs N1500 on the underground market.
