Adamu Mohammed Duguri, the older brother of Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has been kidnapped.
Mr Duguri was said to have been abducted around 7:30 pm on Wednesday at Anguwar Jaki in Bauchi metropolis, an aide told Channels TV.
The incident comes 24 hours after the governor tested positive for the coronavirus.
Mohammed is now in self-isolation after coming in contact with the son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar who earlier tested positive for the virus.
Both men met on an aircraft and exchanged pleasantries.
