According to a report by Daily Trust, the Nigerian Geological Survey Agency (NGSA) has reported that there was earth tremor in Maitama District of Abuja on Thursday, sparking some stir in the area.
A statement released by the agency said that the incident happened at 12:26 in the afternoon.
“Our preliminary findings indicated that the tremor occurred around 12.26pm around the vicinity of Panama Street in Maitama District. After field evaluations, the NGSA determined that the intensity was about 3.0 on the Mercalli Intensity Scale, which means it was felt indoors and lasted less than 1 minute.”
However, the residents were consequently reassured that there was no cause for panic.
The statement further revealed that there was no structural damage because of the shake.
However, NEMA was adequately briefed by the NGSA.
The NGSA technical team are conducting further assessment exercises and will continue to update the public on any new development.
