Nigerian security forces killed 20 suspected members of the Boko Haram sect on Sunday in a raid in the country's northeast, a security officer said.

One soldier was also killed in the shootout in Maiduguri, the capital of the Borno state, the officer said.

Security forces had intelligence that some members of the group were holding a gathering at a location in Maiduguri, said Colonel Victor Ebhaleme, field operations officer of the military and police mixed Joint Task Force (JTF) in Borno.

Boko Haram did not comment and it was not possible to independently confirm the report.

Nigeria is a country of more than 160 million split roughly equally between Muslims and Christians.
