Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum was pictured aboard Abuja bound flight on Wednesday.
Passengers who could not hide their joy were seen taking selfie pictures with the Governor.
According to reports, Zulum was traveling to Abuja from Maiduguri on a commercial plane.
Recall that the governor was recently attacked by Boko Haram fighters on Sunday, September 27.
The location of the attack, Baga, was displaced by the Boko Haram insurgents 21 months ago, forcing most of the residents to take refuge in Monguno and Maiduguri.
Zulum was on an assessment tour of Baga in preparation for the return of thousands of residents displaced from the town by the jihadists in 2014.
