They also abducted women said to be no fewer than 30 during the attack on Friday evening.
Sources added the insurgents shot rapidly, scaring residents into surrounding bushes and destroyed houses as well as other valuable properties before seizing the women.
A source, Innocent Geoffrey, who lives around the affected community, said the residents had all gone off to where they felt they would be safe.
Member representing Gombi/ Hong Federal Constituency, Hon Yusuf Buba Yakubu, said the attack was a bitter setback to a community striving to put Boko Haram insurgency behind it.
Kwapre is on the Adamawa-Borno borders near the notorious Sambisa forest.
It has come under Boko Haram attack a number of times in the past.
The 23 Armoured Brigade Yola under which jurisdiction the attacked village falls, also refused to speak.
