The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) shut down the Shell fuel filling station at Adomi Bridge, Atimpoku, in the Eastern Region for reportedly selling water-laced petroleum goods.
This follows a social media video and a report regarding tainted fuel from the station on August 29.
The NPA claimed its crew tested for water and found it in the outlet’s well.
Vivo Energy management indicated in a letter to the NPA that water entered the subterranean Super tank following heavy rain.
The NPA’s investigation confirmed this.
