Over 15 Tremors Occurred in 3 days – Jaba Chairman
Chairman of Jaba Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Mr. Ben Kure, yesterday disclosed that there had been multiple tremors in Kwoi since the first occurred on Sunday.
Kure, who confirmed that experts had visited the area to assess the situation, said there were more than 15 occurrences.
He told Daily Trust that Sunday tremor was so severe that it shook building foundations while the second early Monday was also intense.
Villagers in Bathang, the area worst hit, said they experienced several tremors, both mild and severe.
One Mrs. Felicia Isaac, whose house was felled by the vibration, stated that most residents now live in fear, while many had fled the area.
Adamu Kwasau, the village head of Bathang, corroborated the statement.
Kwasau recalled that a number of villages moved out as the vibrations continued.
“Since there are promises of assistance from several quarters, I am appealing to the people not to run but stay calm,” he said, urging federal and state governments to expedite action in resolving the tremor.
