Premium Times reports that sources at the Aminu Kano International Airport, where the plane is currently detained, said Sheriff, who was widely accused of sponsoring Boko Haram insurgents in Nigeria, visited the Kano airport at about 10 p.m. on Saturday and held discussions with some officials on the possibility of releasing the aircraft.

According to one of the sources, upon arrival at the airport, officials granted the former governor a secret tour of the aircraft, during which he inspected its consignments.

?I was there and I saw him and two airport security officials accompanying him to inspect the plane. I saw the black helicopters and two bullet proof SUVs.

?I also heard him (Mr. Sheriff) say verbal directive had been given from Abuja for the release of the plane but that authorities of the airport were insisting on written directive,? the source disclosed.
