He was said to have been kidnapped along Abuja-Kaduna Expressway.
Abuja-Abuja Expressway has gained notoriety for accidents and high profile cases of Kidnapping in recent times.
Nelson was abducted on Thursday by unknown persons while going to Kaduna to honour an invitation by the military for a programme, reports said.
It was learnt that efforts to reach the envoy on his GSM phone since Thursday by the Sierra Leonian embassy officials have failed.
This prompted the suspicion that he may have been kidnapped, though no one has claimed responsibility.
Details are still sketchy as of the time of filing this report.
