Black market fuel sellers in Nigeria
Young men who sell petrol in jerrycans by the roadside in Nigeria, known as black maketers, have switched over from the petrol business to selling kerosene in the northern city of Bauchi.

They say they have switched because there are no more petrol shortages since the official pump price rose 67% last week, so motorists no longer need to get petrol on the black market.

Umar, one of the black marketers, told me that now kerosene is more scarce than petrol.

Most families in Nigeria rely on kerosene for cooking.

The black marketers say the government should provide more job opportunities so they don't have to resort to selling fuel on the streets.
