6 Nigerian states with land-ocean boundaries are said to be on the verge of an earthquake incident except adequate steps are taken by the Federal Government.

These measures, the Nigerian Association of Water-Well Drilling Rig Owners and Practitioners (AWDROP), said could reduce the effects of earthquake happening in the mentioned states.

AWDROP, at a press conference addressed by its National President, Mr. Michael Ale, lamented that lack of Underground Water Abstraction Regulation in Nigeria could easily induce earthquake and sea water intrusion, “hence the need for government to ensure strict compliance in the implementation of code of practice in borehole drilling” in the country.

Ale said his Association had been informed of the salt water intrusion affecting underground water usage and subsidence along the land-ocean boundaries in shoreline areas. The areas are:

1. Lagos

2. Port-Harcourt

3. Warri

4. Bayelsa

5. Cross River State

Meanwhile, researchers from the Department of Geology, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, led by Dr Adepelumi Adekunle Abraham, had submitted in its report titled ‘Preliminary Assessment of Earth Tremor Occurrence in Shaki Area, Shaki West Local Government, Oyo State, indicating an impending ‘damaging earthquake’ in the next four years.

Therefore, Shaki, Oyo state completes the list.
