As Borno begins the implementation of restrictions on number of passengers in commercial vehicles and tricycles, fuel prices have increased to 150 naira per liter in some filling station.

Most filling station are closed and the ones open are filled with people all rushing to buy said one of Keke Napep riders.

He also said he waited for one hour just to get his tank filled at the NNPC mega station which still sells for 125Naira.

The task force responsible for the compliance of the new restrictions were seen apprehending defaulters.

Passengers now pay 100 Naira in place of the 50 they normally pay.
