Islamic extremists have abducted 60 more girls and women and 31 boys from villages in northeast Nigeria, witnesses said Tuesday.
Security forces denied the kidnappings. Nigeria's government and military have attracted widespread criticism for their slow response to the abductions of more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped April 15.
There was no way to safely and independently confirm the report from Kummabza, 150 kilometers (95 miles) from Maiduguri, capital of Borno state and headquarters of a military state of emergency that has failed to curtail near-daily attacks by Boko Haram fighters.
Kummabza resident Aji Khalil said Tuesday the abductions took place Saturday in an attack in which four villagers were killed. Khalil is a member of one of the vigilante groups that have had some success in repelling Boko Haram attacks with primitive weapons.
A senior local councilor from the village's Damboa local government told The Associated Press that abductions had occurred but requested anonymity because he was not authorized to give information to reporters. He said elderly survivors of the attack had walked some 25 kilometers (15 miles) to the relative safety of other villages.
The Damboa council secretary, Modu Mustapha, said he could not confirm or deny the abductions and directed a reporter to the council chairman, Alamin Mohammed, who did not answer phone calls or respond to text messages.
Boko Haram has been demanding the release of detained members in exchange for its hostages but President Goodluck Jonathan has said he will not consider a swap.
A strategy to rescue the girls appears to have reached an impasse. Nigeria's military has said it knows where they are but fears their abductors would kill them if any military action is taken.

More of Obama’s people doing their thing,
protected by Obama, who presides for Islam
... and against the US Constitution and American people.
In response to the hijacking of Islam by radicals there were mass protests by millions of moderate mainstream Muslims around world. Oh, wait Never mind.
New hash tag needed!
Notice how the media dropped the story? Since michelle’s hashtag didn’t bring back the girls they dropped the story entirely, so as not to embarrass michelle.
The true story is bearded savages acting like bearded savages always do, and the unwillingless of this administration to deal with them as they should be dealt with.
Also, we haven't heard from all of those Hollywood celebrities who were so outraged and supported Michelle and her hashtag. I guess it was considered "trendy" at the time to support the hashtag, but, as with a lot of things in Hollywood, it was just a passing fad.
Why are the Nigerians not just killing all the moslems? It’s obvious that islam is the problem behind all this. Get islam out of the country and all the problems go with it.
What happens when Boko Haran and ISIS start working together? It’s not just Nigerians that are letting the cancer spread.
## shows more emphatic concern
Generally, every moslem in any non-moslem country should be killed. They are a plague and are at best sleeper terrorists. ISIS is not Nigeria's problem however. Nigeria needs to kill their own moslems and then prevent any others from coming in.
(And yes we should be doing the same exact thing here in the USA. Islam is a plague and is incompatible with our form of government. Those who wish to practise it need to either suicide or go elsewhere. (since the moslem scriptures command them to lie if they can gain advantage by it, no moslem's conversion can be trusted))
I suspect part of the reason is 50% of the population is Muslim. Part of the non-Muslim south (Biafra) tried to break away and form their own country in the late '60s but were thoroughly defeated (with the help of the U.S.).
