His sister, Blessing Samuel, who confirmed the incident, said the abductees stormed the house between 1am and 2am.
She said after jumping into the compound through the fence, they forced the door open.
“They came in their numbers and shot at the main door of the house to gain entrance, ” she said.
“They quietly jumped through the fence to gain access into the compound. When I heard a knock on the door, I left my room to go and open the door, but my brother (Yunana) prevented me, that was when they started shooting at the main door to gain entrance and forcefully took him away.”
Another family source was quoted as saying the kidnappers have contacted them and are demanding a N50 million ransom.
Police are yet to answer Daily Nigerian enquiry about the development.
