Sources says that the relation of the victim, Blessing Samuel, who witnessed the incident, narrated her ordeal in the state capital.

She said the gunmen came in a large number and asked the family members to open the door, but they refused to do so.

Blessing added that the armed men forced their way into the house by shooting down the door. They asked for money, searched the house, and left the house with the victim.

A family member who preferred anonymity disclosed that the kidnappers have contacted them and demanded N50 million as ransom.

 The Public Relations Officer of the Taraba State Police Command, David Misal, said the case has yet to be reported to him.

This comes a day after a Federal High Court Judge was kidnapped while he was on his way to Akure from Abuja.
