The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has suspended its strike and directed its members at Enugu depot to resume supply of petroleum products.

“As a result of the intervention of higher authorities in the unwarranted and unprovoked invasion of our secretariat at Enugu depot, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of IPMAN has called off the strike action.

“Normal services and operations will immediately resume in the affected states of Enugu, Ebonyi and Anambra to allow for fruitful discussions, the National President of IPMAN, Alhaji Sanusi Fari, said in a statement issued on Saturday.
