Mrs. Ann Unenge, the wife of the Benue Commissioner for Lands and Survey, was kidnapped in Makurdi, the state capital of Benue.
The incident, which is the second in Makurdi, occurred less than a week after two women were kidnapped in the same manner.
On Thursday around 6 p.m., she was abducted.
Mrs. Ann was kidnapped shortly after she returned from a visit to her parents in Daudu town, according to a relative of the commissioner.
She was said to be driving a new Toyota Highlander, which was also taken away by her kidnappers.
It was reported that the abductors and Mrs Ann Unenge fought at the B. Division traffic junction when she tried to force open the car door.
The gunmen allegedly fired sporadic shots into the air at the intersection to scare away onlookers before driving away with their victim, who was screaming at the top of her lungs.
Kate Sewuese Anene, a spokesperson for the Benue Police Department, told The Nation that she was unaware of the incident.
