A lecturer at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Prof Biodun Badmus, has said that drilling many wells or boreholes in a specific area cannot cause an earthquake.

Prof Badmus said this at the celebration of the Association of Water-Well Drilling Rig Owners and Practitioners’ 10th anniversary and inauguration of the Ogun State executives in Abeokuta, the state capital.

According to him, available data showed that drilling boreholes had nothing to do with earthquakes, adding that “there wouldn’t be tremor”.

He, however, said the lack of adequate geographical surveys was responsible for the failure to get water after digging boreholes.

Earlier, the President of the association,  Mike Ale, who was represented by Ayo Opeyemi, urged the members across the 27 states in the country to continue to act professionally.
