Residents of Mpape , Jabi and Maitama yesterday were thrown into panic as many of them said they felt the earth vibrated or shook  .

According to Dr Joe Abah ,

“I felt my house in Jabi, Abuja, vibrate around 9pm last night. It didn’t feel like an earth tremor.

While a resident of Mpape area , Hellen Akan had this to say

“I was in my house around 7pm ,when the earth started shaking and cupboard and wardrobe felt down” .

According to residents of the affected areas , the shaking of the earth started at about 6:45 and lasted about 15 minutes

However ,the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA ) Abuja chapter sought to allay fears of the residents .

The Director General of agency ,Abass Idriss urged the residents to remain and not to panic as what occurred was an earth tremor and not an earthquake .He also said that Nigeria is not in anyway prone to earthquakes.

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.
