The insurgents attacked Mainok village in the Konduga Local Government area of the state, at about 6pm on Monday, July 13, 2015, Punch reports.
The incident was confirmed by a local vigilante, Abba Izge who said that the attack lasted more than three hours.
“More than 30 vehicles that were trapped were burnt down as well as hundreds of homes. The entire town was left to mourn the dead and bury their lost ones; some of them burnt beyond recognition,” Izge said.
“Some of the foodstuffs of the villagers were carted away,” he added.
Izge also said that many villagers had gone missing since the attack leading to the belief that they may be forced to join Boko Haram’s ranks.
The sect has intensified its attacks in recent times and has claimed more than 500 lives in Nigeria since May 30.
