Gov. Kashim Shettima of Borno State
Mr Ibrahim Abdullahi, Borno NSCDC Commandant disclosed this in an interview.
The commandant said that some patriotic citizens alerted the command on the circulation of the adulterated commodity.
“We have been receiving distress calls from the public.
“A man from Maduganari reported that his house was almost gutted by fire because he used adulterated kerosene.
“We are surprised how they mixed kerosene and petrol, we don’t know whether it is another ploy by Boko Haram to cause havoc,’’ he said.
He said the command would leave no stone unturned to apprehend whoever was responsible for the act, and urged the public to report any form of nefarious activities to the law enforcement agencies.
