Izghe is in Gwoza district of Borno but its residents have closer ties with Madagali due to its proximity and ethnic allegiances. There was no immediate comment from the Borno state police or the military when contacted by a news agency.
Maina Ularamu, the chairman of Madagali local government area in neighbouring Adamawa state, said one person was injured in the attack.
“Elderly residents who had stayed in the village had also left,” he said.
"The elderly who remained in the town, vowing not to leave their roots, had no option but to move to Madagali because the whole town has been burnt and everything looted," he added.
Some 10,000 residents from Izghe and neighbouring villages fled to Madagali in the wake of last week's attack, heaping pressure on neighbouring towns and cities.
"We are facing a humanitarian situation in Madagali because the displaced persons are in dire need of basic supplies which we don't have the capacity to meet," said Ularamu.
The raid that took place in mostly Christian villages on February 15 saw suspected Boko Haram fighters, who arrived in trucks and wearing military uniform, go door-to-door looking for those hiding in their houses.
