Residents of Mpape and parts of Maitama districts have been experiencing earth tremors within the past few days which have caused a lot of fear for the people.

According to a statement released by Director General of FEMA, Abbas G. Idriss, sudden break in along a fault line resulted in the release of energy that made the ground shake causing the tremor.

Idriss said: “We have been inundated with distress calls in our watch room as a result of Earth shaking happening around Mpape and parts of Maitama districts of the FCT. While appreciating the calls from the public, the FCT Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) wishes to say that the possible cause of the earth shaking might be as a result of earth tremor. It is also a sign of seismic movement within the earth, caused by sudden breaks along a fault line, which results in sudden release of energy that makes the ground shake.”

Senator Bukola Saraki has also reacted to the earth tremor scare. He said: “we have all been feeling the earth tremors in Abuja and surrounding areas over the last 48 hours. I know that many people are scared, but please, remain calm and vigilant. At this time, it is important that NEMA, FCT Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and all emergency services be on high alert to prevent the loss of lives and property.”
