Survivors: Boko Haram killing and kidnapping in villages
Farmer Muhammad Ali says militants armed with guns and swords took away his wife and two daughters, aged 9 and 3, from Abbacheri village.
He is among 400 refugees who say the attacks started a week ago and they walked for six days to reach safety.
A police officer says at least four ailing and malnourished children have died among refugees in Jakana, a village 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of Maiduguri city.
Nigeria's air force has been bombarding camps in Sambisa Forest as soldiers launched a ground offensive.
