The gunmen invaded Gangaren NEPA area of the metropolis and broke into the house of their victim.
Sources close to the victim told Daily Trust Saturday that the gunmen who came in their numbers, ransacked the area before abducting the girl.
Speaking to journalists, the father of the victim, Faruk Mohammed, said he was awoken by the noise of intruders into his house.
According to him, he made an attempt to escape through the back door but met some of them wielding guns by the door and that he had to retreat.
Faruk, who is a personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), added that after he took cover in his bedroom, he heard some of them making effort to break the door, and that it was at that point that he sought help from his colleagues and the police but that the gunmen fled before the arrival of the police and his colleagues from NSCDC.
Faruk said it was after the gunmen had fled that he realised that his daughter was nowhere to be found.
When contacted, the spokesman of the police in the state, DSP Nafiu Abubakar, who confirmed the abduction, said one other woman sustained gunshot injury during the attack.
