The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), yesterday expresssed concern over the infiltration of adulterated lube oil (engine oil) into the petroleum market.

Speaking on the DPR Half Hour on Radio Nigeria, DPR Zonal Operations Comptroller, Wole Akinyosunye, said the callous act is of concern to the organisation due to the effects of fake lubricants on machines.

He said DPR was not resting on its oars, as it is always raiding the illegal facilities of the adulterated lube manufacturers with the assistance of the Nigeria Security And Civil Defense Corp (NSCDC).

He called on consumers of engine oil to insist on purchasing their lube from licensed outlets and petrol filing stations, instead of patronising roadside retailers. He said DPR has always sanctioned and revoked the the licenses of offenders.
