The lawmaker representing the Borno South Senatorial District , Senator Ali Ndume , has called on security agencies to focus on two identified blackspots believed to have become hideouts of the Boko Haram insurgents.
The two areas , according to Ndume , are the Damboa / Gwoza / Chibok axis and the Lake Chad axis .
Ndume made this known in a statement issued on Tuesday from Saudi Arabia where he is performing the lesser Hajj , in reaction to the attacks by insurgents on Damboa , in the Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State , which left scores of people dead .
Thirty -one persons were killed and 48 others injured in a massive bomb attack on Damboa .
While the police in the state said on Sunday that 21 people were killed , residents said 31 people died in the attacks suspected to have been carried out by members of the sect.
According to the police , the explosion occurred on Saturday night in the town, about a distance of 90 kilometres from Maiduguri , the capital of troubled Borno State .
