The refinery is said to have been shut due to a lack of crude oil which was caused by the renewed violence in the Niger Delta.
The Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company (KRPC) has closed down again after reopening in April.
The refinery is said to have been shut due to a lack of crude oil which was caused by the renewed violence in the Niger Delta, Leadership reports.
“We have shut down production for now. We do not have crude supply, am sure it is due to the renewed militancy in the Niger Delta region,” the source said.
“We will resume production as soon as we started getting crude supply from the Niger Delta. We are ready and our equipment are functional, the only problem now is the crude,” the source added.
The recent violence in the Niger Delta has been claimed by militant group, Niger Delta Avengers.
