Residents of Maitama District and Mpape,  outskirts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, are living in palpable fears over the reccurrence of earth tremor in the environs.

The environmental problems, which sent people jittery about two months ago, added more fears as Panama Street in Maitama was devastated at about 12.26 pm of Wednesday, living residents to scamper for safety.

Acting Director General of Nigerian Geological Survey Agency, Dr Abdulrazaq Garba, said at a news conference that findings by the technical team that conducted assessment in the area, discovered that the intensity was felt indoors and lasted less than a minute.

Garba said there was no structural damage as a result of the tremor, but the mark on Panama Street was visible to notice.

While advising residents of the area not to panic, Metrowatch online observed that motorists were already boycotting the street.

Mpape and Maitama District of FCT witnessed the tremor in September this year and the Federal Government set up a committee on September 12 to uncover the cause.

Besides appeals that residents should not be afraid, the report of the committee is still being awaited.
