Friends and family warned to keep off
The man warned his friends and family to keep off for now, apparently fearing that they might besiege his house for the product.
From what is gleaned from the video, the man has more than 14 containers of the sought-after product, and one of them was opened to show that it is filled with fuel.

Social media users condemn fuel hoarding
When the video was shared on Instagram by @instablog9ja, it cause a lot of stir as many people took to the comment section to react to it. Here are a few of their reactions:
"Leave cruise aside, fuel hoarding is not safe please."
"Oil and gas? na inside gallon he wan put gas??"
"Can you imagine. Motivational speakers don too inspire this person."
"Until house catch fire una eye go clear. Everybody wan make money and forget safety."
Man spotted buying fuel with Geepee tank
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a customer was spotted buying fuel with a large tank at a filling station.
Many people who saw the video said it is inhumane that one person will be allowed to buy fuel with such a big container. They said this may deny others the opportunity to have access to the product.
As fuel scarcity bites harder in Nigeria, buying the product in big tanks according to many, is a way of stocking up one's reserves.
