Some residents from East Legon, Ablekuma, Ashongman Estate, Tetegu, Sowutuom, and Mambrobi Sempe have also confirmed they experienced the tremor.
Outside Accra, places like Dodowa in the Greater Accra region, Kasoa, Winneba, Awutu and Senya Bereku in the Central region and Suhum-Akrabo in the Eastern region also experienced the tremor.
Since the tremor, many residents in the affected areas have lost their sleep and rushed outside their homes.
Meanwhile, Nicholas Opoku, a senior Seismologist has advised Ghanaians to expect more tremors this year.
He told TV3 on Thursday, June 25 that the expected earth tremors will not lead to earthquakes, however.
