Cows and camels were not spared in the fury as over 300 were gunned down and more than 1,000 others carted away.
A security source said, the village, Faduma Koloram, in Gubio local government area of Borno state was equally torched.
A member of the Civilian Joint Task Force, CJTF, who spoke anonymously said the attack which was at about noon on Tuesday was on for over two hours.
He said they arrived in vehicles and on motorcycles, shooting with AK-47s, razing the village and stealing 1,200 cattle and camels.
He said the insurgents accused the residents of the village of sharing information on Boko Haram’s movements with security authorities.
He said the people of the village were caught unaware and unprepared as the insurgents came in large numbers and well armed.
