The wife of Benue Commissioner for Lands and Survey, Mrs. Ann Unenge has been abducted in Makurdi, Benue state capital.
The abduction took place less than one week after two women were abducted in a similar fashion.
She was kidnapped around 6:pm on Thursday.
A family source told The Nation that Mrs. Ann was abducted shortly after she returned from Daudu town, an outskirt where she went to visit her parents.
She was said to be driving a new model Toyota Highlander,which her abductors also took away.
The gunmen reportedly shot sporadically into the air at the junction to scare away passersby before driving away with their victim.
