The Kaduna State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) has said that no life or property was lost from the earth tremor that occurred over the weekend at Kwoi community.

Executive Secretary of the agency, Mr Ezekiel Baba-Karik, also debunked reports (not by News Express) that a similar incident occurred in Nok and Sambang Dagi villages on Monday.
Instead, he explained that the earth tremor occurred twice only in Kwoi community on Saturday and in the early hours of Monday morning.
While he explained that the incident was not as devastating as being exaggerated by the public, Mr Baba-Karik said that most residents fled from their homes due to fear.
He further explained that a team of geologists have been dispatched in the area to ascertain the cause of the earth tremor.
Speaking when rescue workers visited the affected areas, the caretaker chairman of Jaba Local government, Ben Kure, said that government would do everything possible to ensure that the people are protected.
After the first incident in Kwoi community, the Kaduna State Government had also appealed to the people of the community to be calm.
In a statement issued on Sunday by spokesman to the state governor, Samuel Aruwan, the government said that a formal report has been made to the appropriate authorities to investigate the development and issue appropriate guidance.
The statement directed SEMA to mobilise its officials to the area and to monitor the situation and assist the people in case of any emergency.
An earth tremor, according to geologists, is the perceptible shaking of the surface of the earth, resulting from the sudden release of energy in the earth’s crust that creates seismic waves.
Earlier in the year, the Nigeria Geographical Information Service (NGIS) had warned of possible earthquakes in the country, particularly in the south west region due to indiscriminate drilling of boreholes.
