The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has docked three persons at the Federal High Court sitting in Awka, over alleged fabrication and selling of substandard Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders.

The defendants – Jerry Azubuike, Patrick Ikechukwu and Cosmas Onwuka – were arraigned before Justice Babatunde Quadri.

The prosecution counsel, Mr Moor Kuma, told the court that the defendants were members of the United Welders Association in Anambra.

According to him, the defendants exposed for sale and use, substandard gas cylinders of various sizes (3kg, 5kg, 6kg and 10kg) on 58, Bida Road, Onitsha, on June 27, 2018.

Kuma said that the cylinders did not comply with the Nigerian Industrial Standard (NIS) 69:2013, –  the specification for refillable LPG cylinders.

The prosecution counsel said that the offences were punishable under Section 26 (2) (i) and Section 31 (2) of the Standards Organisation of Nigeria Act, 2015.

Kuma added that fabrication of substandard gas cylinders contravened Section 1 (18) (ii) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act, 2004.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the four-count charge brought against them.
