elrufai (1)

Residents of Sambang Dagi in Jaba Local Government of Kaduna State witnessed another earth tremor in the early hours of Monday.

The incident occurred barely 24-hours after the first tremor was reported at Nok village about 20km away from Sambang.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the second vibration occurred around 4a.m Monday, leaving shocked residents scampering for safety.

It was not immediately clear whether there were casualties.

Earlier, the Kaduna State government had in a press statement, urged residents of the affected communities to remain calm.

The government on Sunday appealed for calm, and sympathised with the residents of kwoi in Jaba Local Government Area, following the first tremor.

The government said in a statement signed by Samuel Aruwan, Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, that it had made a formal report to the appropriate authorities to investigate the development.

The statement said Mr. El-Rufai, had notified the geological and emergency agencies of the incident.

“The governor sympathises with the people in the Kwoi area over the reported earth tremor,” the statement said.

“He has directed the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to mobilise to the area and comfort the citizens.

“The National Geological Agency has also been notified, and has been invited to investigate the tremor in the Kwoi area and provide appropriate guidance.

“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 wishes to appeal for calm, and urges everyone not to spread unverified information, or create panic,” the statement said.

NAN reports that the first incident, which occurred at about 1p.m, shook the community and created some panic among the people. (NAN)

    God created everybody (Christians and Muslims); but El-Rufai, from some of his past comments, and present policies/plan against Christians was asking God what HE can do? This is just a warming to El-Rufai, if at all he will understand. I pray for God’s mercy on the good people of Kaduna and Nigeria at large.

    Why are all these calamities and NEGATIVE signs & wonders following this APC junta??
    Southern kaduna people committed the gravest sin of their lives voting for their oppressors.
    They need to pray for forgiveness and extricate themselves from this evil party!

    • Azeez

      You are lunatic illiterate. The southern kaduna affected by the tremor is Christian part of kaduna. They massively voted for GEJ and PDP during the last election.

    Don’t spread foolishness is you’ve got none, a tremor needs to be investigated and it’s inevitable when it wants to occur. One of the many reasons why creating a green environment and green living is being preached all over the world…. It’s ok to be superstitious don’t turn it to foolishness

      Is Sudaniyya not the city where Moslems beheaded Akaluka and mockingly paraded his head on the streets? Wherefore must 2 or 3 tremors not shake the city? Why must the godless oppress a Christian asking where is thy God?

      • amazing2012

        Because the Christians offended God by killing Muslims, and leaving God to pagan acts. What the believe is Christianity are alcoholism, womanizing, and dancing.
        Isaiah 29: 5 Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly. 6 Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

          I am glad you know that you are daft and ignorant, that’s why you are expecting my quick reply so that you can learn something.

          Sorry I will say to you that the Old Testament you have exuberantly been quoting is exactly what Our Lord Jesus Christ came on earth to change. Christ changed all violence with peace. Quote for me more of New Testament verses, I will respond to you. I am a Christian man and my roots are based on the teachings of Christ.

          Away with Quaranic cum Hadith violence. Jihad, violence, amputation, beheading, stonning and throat-cutting are for you Mohammedans. Christ is peace loving, Mohamed is a violent beast. Don’t quote for me anything that encourages violence, I hate such. Ogbeni, e gbo?

          • amazing2012

            You are so daft to think I will learn anything positive from you rather than prove of ignorance and shame.
            Jesus never says he come to CHANGE the teaching of Old Testament. If he says so, please quote the place in the bible. Here is my reason that he did come to change it but to make come truth.
            “Matthew 5:17-19ESV “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. {Luke 18:18:21}18A certain ruler asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
            19“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 20You know the commandments: ‘You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother. 21“All these I have kept since I was a boy,” he said.

            Having read through your clever references, it is abundantly clear that you lack adequate knowledge of the Holy Bible. Jesus’ statements refer us, His followers (and this overwrites ALL Old Testament injunctions) thus, “Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? (Matthew 5:43-46 KJV)

            Again, our Lord Jesus Christ said, “And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? (Matthew 5:47)

            Still on Love, Jesus Christ proclaimed, that “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.” [John 3:16-18 (MSG Version)]

            Jesus Christ is LORD! No negotiation. My friend and brother, receive Him NOW and be saved from the very certain WRATH of God.

    The restless souls of those extra-judicially murdered and secretly buried by agents of the Nigerian state are revolting from the great beyond. Yesterday I predicted that the 1st tremor was a warning of the beginning of grave retributions from divine quarters.

    Unless justice is quickly done, Kaduna may not know peace, it was inhumane to extra-judicially kill 400-1000 citizens including women and children then bury them in mass graves secretly without rites.
