Kurawa, however, explained that the whereabouts of the kidnapped woman was still unknown as the kidnappers were yet to either contact the police or the family of the victim.

"We are doing everything humanly possible to trace her whereabouts and free her safely from her abductors.

''We are, however, soliciting the support of the public by rendering useful intelligence reports that may lead to the successful rescue of the kidnapped woman."

Her son, Kebbe, also confirmed the abduction of his mother, adding: '' it is true that my mother had been kidnapped.

''However, this is only what I can say for now apart from seeking for fervent prayers from the public for her safe return to her family."
