Abuja Tremor

Residents of Abuja and Mpape district in the FCT have reported cases of earth tremors which started from Wednesday night.

Speaking to Daily Trust, residents of Mpape, which is home to several quarries, said they noticed that buildings had been vibrating since Wednesday.

One resident Amos Uchenna said: “When it started we thought it was normal rock activity. But after a point we realised that it was abnormal,” adding that the plaza where his shop is located also vibrated.

“We thought the building wanted to collapse. It happened at about four times when I was at the shop,” he added.

He said when he got to his house, it continued. “Later we went to sleep but it happened again. The ground vibrated so much that the ceiling almost came down.”
