This ugly development led to scarcity of fuel that had lingered for days but being currently addressed by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). 
The NNPC on Tuesday through its official Twitter handle, and announced that it has over 1 billion litres of safe Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol, in its stock for nationwide distribution.
It also said 2.3 billion litres of PMS would arrive in Nigeria between now and the end of the month to restore sufficiency.
The group said after it learnt of the efforts by the NNPC to address the fuel deficit and end the long queue at petrol stations across the country, it decided to shelve its planned protest. 
It also expressed confidence in the management of the NNPC in addressing the crisis in the Petroleum sector which it was caused by the enemies of the country.
Going forward, the group however, advised NNPC to ensure a proper Quality control on any of there Products coming into the country, adding that the recent incident damaged a lot of citizen’s vehicles and it is a huge embarrassment to the country as a whole.
