 Bukola Saraki, FEMA reactto the recent earth tremors rocking AbujaResidents in parts of 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 sudden release of energy that makes the ground shake. “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,” Idriss said.   Senate President Bukola Saraki also 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'.The post Bukola Saraki, FEMA reactto the recent earth tremors rocking Abuja appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
