Eclipse to cause ‘psychological discomfort’

`The Nigerian Government has warned citizens they may suffer “psychological discomfort” during a new eclipse this month but urged them not to panic.

Information Minister Frank Nweke says an eclipse in 2001 caused riots in northern Borno state because people did not know why it happened.

“Some people even felt some evil people in their communities were responsible for the eclipse,” he said in a statement aimed at reassuring Nigerians the eclipse is expected to darken parts of the country on March 29.’
