The Enugu State Government has placed a ban on the activities of the state chapter of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria.

The Permanent Secretary, General Administration, Office of the Secretary to the State Government, Josephine Onyia, disclosed this in a press statement made available to newsmen on Friday in Enugu.

Onyia said the ban was with immediate effect and would last until the state government gave further notice.

She said the decision followed the review of the protracted crisis that had engulfed the state chapter.

She said the crisis had assumed frightening dimensions giving rise to cultism and banditry.

Onyia said the state government would not stand aloof in the circumstances which had its attendant grave security implications in the state.

She said a committee comprising the Department of Petroleum Resources, Nigeria Police and Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps would be constituted to take charge of the association.

Onyia said the committee would be in place pending when normalcy would return to the association.

“Members of the public are further reassured that the state government will as always live up to its responsibility of ensuring the security of lives and property within the state,” Onyia said.

The state chapter of IPMAN has been experiencing a bitter leadership crisis which had degenerated to physical confrontations between members od various factions of the group.
