Militant Leadership Monitor – October 2022
The October 2022 issue of Militant Leadership Monitor starts off with a brief on the Iranian generals and defense officials responsible for supplying drones to the Russian army to use against Ukraine. Afterward, it gives a profile of the Boko Haram conspirator and newspaper editor Tukur Mamu, who was recently arrested in Nigeria.
