The Ag. Controller General, Federal Fire Service (FFS), Dr Samson Karebo has called on Nigerians to avoid the storage of Premium Motor Spirits (PMS) also known as Petrol in their homes during this period of scarcity.
Karebo, in a signed press release by the spokesman of the Service, Abraham Paul reminded that petrol is a dangerous substance; a highly inflammable liquid which gives off vapour and if not handled carefully can cause serious fire explosion.
He said there is always a risk of a fire outbreak or an explosion if there is a source of ignition nearby such as a naked flame, an electrical spark among others.
He warned that Nigerians must be very cautious and avoid any act which could lead to fire outbreak in their environment.
