Two planes carrying the former president’s luggage and some family members preceded the Air Force One plane.
After resting for about 20 minutes at the airport VIP lounge, Mr Buhari, his wife and his son were led to a waiting helicopter by Mr Radda and heads of security agencies in Katsina for an onward journey to Daura.
