Regular commercial flights will resume on Friday to the Nigerian city of Maiduguri, 18 months after the government closed the airport because of persistent Boko Haram attacks, a booking officer at Medview Airline said on Thursday.

Maiduguri is the birth place of Boko Haram, which has killed thousands and kidnapped hundreds during its six-year campaign to carve out an Islamist state in northern Nigeria.
