The Oyo State Government on Thursday sealed up a petroleum station for violating the state’s environmental laws.

Also on Thursday, government agents demolished no fewer than five shops and a pub during the exercise.

The filling station located at Orita Challenge in Ibadan, the state capital, was also accused of accommodating a filthy drainage lane which environmental officers alleged exposed residents to health hazards.
