Major cities across the country experienced severe fuel shortage over the weekend as motorists formed long queues at the few filling stations with fuel.

In Lagos, motorists were seen queuing to buy fuel at Ogba, Ikeja, Berger, Ikotun, Akute among other places withing the metropolis.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) blamed the shortage on the continued closure of a vandalised NNPC pipeline at Arepo, Ogun State.
