Boko Haram has taken control of a series of towns and villages in north-eastern Nigeria in recent weeks.
Muhammed Gava, the leader of a vigilante fighter group, told the Associated Press that heavily armed Boko Haram militants surged through Azaya Kura in several vehicles on Wednesday.
But others may have died after they fled into the bush, residents said.
The village is about 40km (25 miles) from Maiduguri, capital of Borno state.
About 30 boys and girls were taken during a raid in October, despite government claims of a truce. At least 17 people were also killed in the assault.
