Residents of communities around Northern Borno have expressed worry over the nature of their representations by lawmakers from the zone.

According to them, with one senator, three members of the green chamber and nine members of the State Assembly, their cry for liberation would have made President Buhari to sit up on the issue of constant attack in the area by elements of Boko Haram and break away Islamic State for West African Province, ISWAP.

A resident, Usman Kyari said the distance between Maiduguri and Monguno is about 200 kilometres and to journey along that route on a normal day, takes three to four hours. But with the insecurity situation, it takes a whole day especially when there is an attack.
