It was gathered that the incident occurred at about 10pm on Saturday when he was whisked away to an unknown destination.
According to a family source, the gunmen trailed him while he was returning to his house and picked him up.
”They trailed him to the house yesterday dragged him out of his car at gun point and whisked him away.
”He works at NNPC Towers, Abuja, but on weekends, drives to Kaduna, where his family members reside,” the source added.
