Nigerians in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja have been experiencing earth tremor in the past few days. The areas where the earth tremor was pronounced were Mpape and parts of Maitama districts
The FCT Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has attributed the cause of the tremor to seismic movement within the earth.
Director General, FEMA, Abbas G. Idriss, said in a statement on Thursday that the tremor was caused by sudden breaks along a fault line, resulting in a sudden release of energy that makes the ground shake.
Here are some reactions from Nigerians on Twitter ;
Sad thing about this Abuja earth tremor is that people who are supposed to be Geologists are already working In GTBank.
No Agency to trust
Thanos is in Abuja to collect the corruption stone hence the tremors.
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.
Father Lord these things going on in Abuja better not be an Earthquake. Nigeria is already blessed with several Natural Disasters in our Politicians. Just look at our Natural Disastrous President to start with & have mercy on Us
Senator Dino Melaye
I have informed the FCT Minister and Perm Sec. on the scaring earth movement in some parts of Abuja at 6:11am. I felt earth tremors in my home in maitama too. Measures are been taken to address the problem.
I will keep the FCT administration on their toes on this.
News of tremors in Abuja and fault lines across Nigeria is worrisome. In the midst of our social, political, economic, and religious troubles, we can’t handle an ecological disaster. I strongly urge the govt not to leave this issue to prayer and sentiment. Please research and act
Tremors shaking in Abuja, and our Minister for the environment is a scholar in Agriculture, why Geologist are working as a Pastor or in the Bank.
