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