Ahmed Nabil al-Taher al-Alam was snatched on Sunday near the committee's offices in the city centre, according to his brother, Salah al-Alam.
He says there has been no contact with the official since.
Salah al-Alam said he learned of the kidnapping from his brother's friend, who was there when the abduction took place. The gunmen bundled Mr al-Alam into a car before speeding off.
Security officials said they are investigating the incident.
The committee chief was friends with ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi's son, Mohammed, and also served as the head of Libyan Football Association before Gaddafi's capture and killing in last year's civil war.
