A Shell Filling Station near the Adomi Bridge (Atimpoku) in the Eastern Region of Ghana has been shut down temporarily for allegedly selling petroleum product mixed with water to unsuspecting customers.
An investigative team from the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) in the region stopped the operation of the fuel station on Monday, August 29, 2022.
The NPA discovered the infractions after it followed up complaints made by some customers in videos that popped up on social media.
It is reported that ‘The team immediately undertook a water content presence test and a dip into the well of the outlet indicated the presence of water’.
It is suspected that water leaked into the underground Super tank after a heavy downpour in the area.
NPA is conducting further investigations. It could force the filling station to pay heavy compensations to affected customers.
