The Federal Government, on Tuesday, said it has installed no fewer than four seismometers in four strategic areas in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), with a view to curbing future earth tremor.

Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, Abubakar Bwari, stated this in Abuja at the commissioning of Earthquake monitoring command and control centre established by the Nigerian Geological Survey Agency (NGSA).

“Following repeated tremors around Abuja, the initial programme of national deployment was adjusted to accommodate seismographic densification of Abuja. A 4-station Abuja network has therefore been put in place to have a closer and more effective oversight of the FCT, ” he said.
