Residents of Abjai, an Area Council in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), have debunked a report that the town experienced a 3.8 magnitude earth tremor on Friday.

The residents said no such incident occurred in the town or anywhere nearby.  The refutation came days after a doctor at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State, announced that a tremor occurred in the town.

A resident of Abaji, Muhammed Sani, who claimed to have lived in the town for over 32 years, said no such thing happened.

Sani said his house is about one kilometre from the reported epicentre.  He said: “I did not feel the earth shake; nothing happened here and I did not hear of anything.”

The Ona of Abaji, Adamu Yunusa, also debunked the report, saying: “I did not hear or feel any tremor on Friday. It is good you came to confirm from us. I am not aware of any of such activity in Abaji. In fact, I am just hearing about the report from you. I have not got such a report from my people or felt any tremor.”

The district head of the epicentre of the supposed tremor at Abattoir Phase III, Musa Yakubu, also debunked the report.

Acting Head of the Department of Physics at the University of Abuja, who is also in charge of the tremor centre at the university, George Nyam, said the claim was baseless.

He said: “The equipment (for monitoring earth movements) has been able to record quite a number of events, but of recent we have not had any activity. The equipment was installed by the Nigeria Geological Survey Agency (NGSA) three years ago as a pilot scheme for us to observe and record events around the university and Abuja Municipal.
