BREAKING: Fresh Deafening Earth Tremor Hits Kaduna; Residents Flee The Community

Another earth tremor on Tuesday rocked the Kwoi community in Jaba Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The incident had reportedly forced many residents to flee the community.

An earlier tremor had taken place on Monday around 3am.

Following the incidents, schools in the city were shut down and students, who had just resumed from the long vacation, were asked to return home.

Meanwhile, the Head of Geography Department, Kaduna State University, Dr. Idowu Abbas, said the constant incident of earth tremor in Kwoi town might lead to a major earthquake, urging the government to place the community on a watch list for a possible evacuation.

He said:

“It is unfortunate that the tremor happened but it is not unusual. This is because it can happen anywhere and at any time as long as there is movement underneath the earth surface. It can happen anywhere, it is just unfortunate that it happened in Kwoi.

“The tremor could be a signal of a bigger incident in Kwoi. And it still depends on what happens within the earth surface. I think the Nigerian Space, Research and Development Agency is already looking into that. Honestly speaking earth tremor is a small earth quake, the major earth quake can come.”
