FEMA issues statement as earth tremor hits Abuja

Published

on

Residents in parts of Abuja, have been gripped by fear as they continue to experience earth tremor in Mpape and parts of Maitama districts.

For several decades, quarrying activities and rock blasting have been ongoing in Mpape. But the FCT Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has attributed the cause of the tremor to seismic movement within the earth.

The Director General, FEMA, Abbas G. Idriss, said in a statement Thursday that the tremor was caused by sudden breaks along a fault line, resulting in sudden release of energy that makes the ground shake.

Idriss also added that rock blasting and mining activities in an area could result in the underground rocks to experience stress.

The FEMA DG urged the public to remain calm and not panic by the development.
FEMA also assured that the likelihood of any earthquake in the country was low as Nigeria is not in an earthquake zone.

The agency also issued safety tips for the public to follow in the event of continued occurrence of tremor.
