The Federal Capital Territory Emergency Management Agency [FEMA] has confirmed earth tremors in and around Abuja, saying that the tremors are as result of seismic movements under the earth crust.
The development, it was also confirmed, was as a result of frequent blasting of rocks using dynamites.
Excavations and minings are frequent features of life in Abuja as many mining companies are having field day tearing up the earth crust for rocks and other minerals.
Consequently, FEMA has issued safety tips to residents in Abuja and environs. See the official document:
