The Volta Regional Directorate of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has locked up the tank and dispensers of the Radiance Petrol Filling Station in Ho.
According to the Volta Regional Manager of NPA, Rashid Dawda, a customer reported of suspected adulterated product after filling his tank, which made the vehicle immobile.
Officials of the NPA were subsequently dispatched to the site to secure samples and seal the affected dispensers and tanks to assist in its investigations.
Mr Dauda in an interview with the media said, preliminary investigations would be undertaken at its laboratory in Ho with other segments going for forensic audit either at the Ghana Standards Authority or Tema Oil Refinery.
He said if the station is found guilty, the NPA’s remedial action would be for the station to fix the affected vehicle and compensate the customer.
He added that “the NPA would not compromise on its mandate, and appealed to customers to first report any such breaches to the Authority for prompt action.
