confrontations between militias of the two Al-Shabaab leaders

Mogadishu (Sunatimes) A fresh row has reportedly erupted between Al-Shabaab’s Mukhtar Robow Abu Mansur and the leader of Al-Shabaab, Ahmed Godane, forcing Robow’s allied Al-Shabaab militias to move to one side of Baidoa town, in what seems to a show of military mighty.

Reliable sources in Baidoa say, Godane allied Al-Shabaab militia withdrew from Robow’s strong hold town of Baidoa and fled to some parts of Lower Shabele.

Eyewitnesses in the area told Bar-kulan that militia loyal to Al-Shabaab’s second in command, Abu Mansur Robow, thronged into Baidoa’s ADC centre (former TFG parliament seat), heightening tensions which are likely to escalate to confrontations between militias of the two Al-Shabaab leaders whose relation has been an all-time low.

The row between the two senior most Al-Shabaab leaders is likely to cause division inside the Al-Shabaab militia that will possibly ruin Al-Shabaab’s military capability in the near future in Somalia.
