FCT Authorities Release Safety Tips After Earth Tremor Hits Abuja

Following reports of earth tremor in Abuja, the Emergency Management Agency of Nigeria has released tips on what residents should do. 


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mallam Muhammad Musa Bello
 
The Emergency Management Agency of Nigeria’s Federal capital of Abuja has confirmed reports of earth tremor reported by residents.
 
In tweets on Friday, residents reported experiencing the ‘shaking’ effects of tremor in their homes at dawn today. The agency said it could have come from the movement of the earth or it could be by the blasting of rocks or mining in the area.
 
Some residents of Maitama and Utako said they felt the tremor. But there was no such report from Apo and other areas of the city.
 
The emergency agency said the residents of Mbappe also felt it.
 
Tips
 
The agency has urged residents to stay calm and hide under tables if inside the house or stay away from buildings if outdoor.
 
Tremors are very rare in Nigeria. In 1984, a huge tremor was felt in the country, with many towns from Lagos, Ijebu-Ode, Ibadan reporting the experience.
 
Kaduna also recently reported earth tremor.
 
Seismologists said a small fault line from the Atlantic inwards exists, making Nigeria prone to tremors, but not earthquake.
