Another earth tremor has hit the Kaduna state town of Sambang Dagi in Jaba Local Government area.

The tremor occurred in the early hours of Monday,  barely 24-hours after a similar one was reported at Nok village about 20km away from Sambang.

The residents were thrown into panic when they suddenly felt the tremor  around 4 a.m.

Details of damages or any loss of lives were still sketchy as at the time of filing this report.

The government had on Sunday after the first incident said in a statement signed by Samuel Aruwan, Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, that it had made a formal report to the appropriate authorities to investigate the development.

The statement noted that Gov. Nasir El-Rufai, has notified the geological and emergency agencies about  the incident.

It also noted that the Kaduna State Government is receiving updates from the area and relevant government agencies have been directed to take steps to comfort the residents and to assuage their unease as they come to terms with an unusual event.

The Kaduna State Government through the statement appealed for calm, and urged everyone not to spread unverified information, or create panic.
