Nigerian security forces have denied reports that 60 girls and women and 31 boys have been abducted in the northeast of the country.
There is no way to safely and independently confirm the report from Kummabza, located 95 miles from the capital of Borno state, the Associated Press reported.
Aji Khalil, of a local anti-Boko Haram group, told AP the abductions took place Saturday in an attack in which four villagers were killed.
