Police in Kenema on Tuesday evening raided and arrested gallons of fuel belonging to fuel hoarders at Saint Charles Park in Kenema.

According to SAH News Channel, It’s not clear how many gallons were caught, as the hoarders were trying to escape with them before they were apprehended by police officers.

Kenema, for the last three days, has experienced shortage of petroleum products in most gas stations across the city.

The fuel stations argue that they don’t have enough fuel, but they sell the products in large quantity to the hoarders and the black market dealers.
