Adekunle Adepelumi, a professor of Geophysics at the Department of Geology, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, on Sunday released data on his investigation, confirming reported earth tremor which took place at the premises of the university in Ile-Ife, Osun State.

According to Prof. Adekunle Adepelumi findings, he observed that the tremor of low magnitude occurred in Nigeria at 11:11:25.6 am on June 5, 2021.

While noting that the origin time was 11:11.08.2 am (GMT), he revealed that the information placed the estimated epicentral distance between 108kilometers and 113 km away from the measuring station at the OAU, Ile-Ife, Nigeria.

“The S wave particle motion generally trends North-South and North-east-South-west. This suggests that the wave is travelling perpendicular to the particle motion. Hence, the epicentre is somewhere along the North-west-South-east direction of Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria,” he said.
