NPA raids illegal cylinder refurbishing facility

The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) raided an illegal cylinder refurbishing facility in Makola, Accra, and arrested seven suspects in collaboration with the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) and Ghana Police.

The suspects, who were apprehended after receiving a tip, were refurbishing damaged cylinders and reintroducing them into the market.

During the operation last Friday, three trucks of ceased cylinders ranging in weight from 5kg to 14.5kg, wielding tools, cutting and grinding tools, paints, and accessories were recovered.

Mrs Ntiwaa stated that the Authority’s intervention was critical because the country continues to record several domestic fires that have claimed lives and properties, and that it was critical for everyone to condemn these negative acts.

Mr. M. A. Korsah, Assistant Director of Safety at the Ghana National Fire Service, has advised all LPG users to be on the lookout for some of the substandard cylinders that have been reintroduced into the system.
