The Nigeria security and civil defence corps (NSCDC) with the efforts of the JTF nab the petrol black marketers on the street and put them to punishment. The ACG of the NSCDC in Abuja however  warned the defaulters to desist from such business and search for better alternatives.

In their operations, some filling stations who were holding the product and make sales to the black marketers at mid night with higher price were also exposed, and immediate order were given to them to start selling at the normal price.
