The origin time is 11:11.08.2 am (GMT) (Figures 1 to 3).The estimated epicentral distance (D) is placed between 108 and 113 km away from the measuring station at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria.The S wave particle motion generally trends NS and NESW (Figure 4). This suggests that the wave is traveling perpendicular to the particle motion.
