Residents of Kaduna groaned on Wednesday as black marketers sell Premium Motor Spirit, popularly known as petrol for N1,000 per litre in parts of the state.

This comes amid the fuel scarcity that hit the country recently and has yet to abate. Channels Television observed that motorists continue to queue for hours at petrol stations to buy the product.

In the capital city of Kaduna, the residents lamented that despite the assurance by the Federal Government to address the scarcity, the situation has continued to linger, even as they said they buy fuel at the black market at an expensive rate.

One of the residents, Abdulsalam Munir, told Channels Television that he had been in the queue for over five hours, yet he could not buy petrol.
