    My heart really goes out to everyone who’s got family or residing in any of these shock affected areas.

    It is still advised that those within the perimeters of the epicenter should evacuate ASAP as shockwave interference between 2 epicenters could lead to very destructive high magnitude aftershocks in the coming days.

    Reports also have it that some Nigerian players too are currently missing, most notable amongst them Henry Onyekuru. May God spare their lives wherever they may be.

    These are really difficult times for humanity.
