The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has revealed that over 300 houses were affected by last week’s tremors in Kwoi, Kaduna state.
Three tremors were recorded at different locations in Jaba local government area of the state.
Speaking with on Thursday, Musa Ilalah, the agency’s zonal coordinator, said no life was lost, but that the affected houses either collapsed or got cracked.
The coordinator urged the residents to remain calm, saying measures were already being taken by the federal and state governments to provide succour to the affected persons.
“We have gone round and have seen the houses that were affected,” Ilalah said.
“The assessment is still ongoing; we are waiting for the geologists to tell us the root of the problem and what will be the next plan of action for the occupants of these communities.
“We in NEMA will do our best; we are going to write our report and send it to the headquarters, Abuja. We all know that the rock is the root of the problem but only the geological services will be able to tell us the cause of the tremor.”
