The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has called off its one-day strike and resumed the distribution of products in eastern zone comprising Port Harcourt, Calabar, Aba, Enugu, and Makurdi.

The Eastern Updates gathered that the National President of IPMAN Alhaji Sanusi Fari had directed members of the association at the depots within the zone to suspend dispatch of products effective Monday to protest alleged intimidation by the police.

Fari had said the indefinite strike would subsist until the leadership of IPMAN Port Harcourt depot led by Dr George Obele which was forcefully sacked on July 30 under the protection of police was restored.
