He represents Nguroje Constituency in the House of Assembly.
Mohammed, the Minority Leader, was snatched on Wednesday morning from his residence in Jalingo.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, DSP David Misal, told NAN that the captive was seized after sporadic gunshots.
His house is located next to the Comprehensive Secondary School, Jalingo.
