Kwaji said the whereabouts of the woman was not yet known because the abductors were yet to communicate with anybody.
He said the command had deployed additional detectives to the area to assist in tracking the culprits.
Kwaji therefore called on members of the public with useful information to contact the nearest police station and present same.
Chairman of the Council, Alhaji Tukura Bashir, also confirmed the incident and said there was no communication from the abductors as at the time of filing this report.
