Nigeria bans Dutch fuel firm Gunvor

Nigeria has banned a Dutch firm which it claims imported 33,000 tons of contaminated fuel into the country, damaging hundreds of cars, according to news agency reports.

The Amsterdam-based company, Gunvor International, is no longer allowed to import fuel to Nigeria and the contaminated petrol must be returned to the Netherlands, the reports say.
