Making Calls At Filling Stations Now A Crime, Calls For Jail Term Sentence

The police have said that making phone calls at filling stations is a criminal offence and would land the offender in jail.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, has said that an offender could be prosecuted and jailed for attempted arson, adding that, police officers have the authority to arrest anyone found making phone calls or smoking at filling stations.

He described the filling station as a public facility where motorists cannot act on their own terms without putting into consideration the inflammable products like petrol and other petroleum products being dispensed there.

Moshood, therefore, cautioned the public against violating the safety rules forbidding smoking and phone calls at filling stations.

He said, “Making phone calls or smoking at filling stations is a criminal offence and the police, of course, could arrest anyone violating the safety rules put in place to safeguard life and property at the filling stations.”
