Both agencies confirmed this in a joint statement signed by Mr. Vincent Owan, Director, Planning, Research and Forecasting NEMA and Mr. Abdulrazak Garba of the NGSA and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

The NGSA revealed that it received a call at about 12.45 p.m from a location in Maitama reporting the incident after which a technical team was immediately dispatched to the location.

It stated that a team was sent to the location of the call for an on spot assessment and an internal response protocol was immediately activated, informing relevant government agencies and stakeholders.

“Our preliminary findings indicated that the tremor occurred at about 12.26 hrs around the vicinity of Panama Street in Maitama district, Abuja.

“After the field evaluation, the NGSA determined that the intensity was about 3.0 on the Mercalli Intensity Scale.

“That means it was just felt indoors and lasted less than one minute.

“Further inspection revealed that there was no structural damage due to the vibrations and hence, NEMA was adequately briefed by the NGSA.

“The residents were consequently assured that there was no cause for alarm,’’ it stated.

According to Owan, the NGSA technical teams were conducting further assessments and will continue to update the public on further development.

Visiting the scene of the incident, residents expressed worry over the reoccurrence of the earth tremor in the FCT, saying that they no longer feel safe.

Hajiya, Lami Abubakar, who lives on Panama Street, told NAN that it was important for adequate assessment to be done around the axis that have been experiencing the earth tremor.

She said that this would help identify the causes, to know if it was natural or due to manmade activities for possible solutions or safe practices that should be adhered to by residents.

She said that the reoccurrence was too soon and she was yet to recover from the shock, which has also affected her three-year old child.

Abubakar called on relevant agencies not to take the incident for granted.
