Ahmed  Godane was able to recruit and radicalise a small group who would later carry out attacks including the killing of Analena Tonelli, an Italian aid worker working in Borame hospital, in 08/2006, and the killing of British couples.

 

Ahmed  Godane was arrested by the local police after the attacks and freed by the Somaliland authorities in early 2007 after most of his friends were killed or jailed.  He immediately joined the “Council of Islamic Courts"(CIC) in the South fighting the Ethiopian forces in the Ethiopian-Somali War.

After Aden Hashi Farah was killed in a USA airstrike in Southern Somalia, on 05/01/2008, Ahmed  Godane  became the leader of al-Shabab with Mukhtar Robow Adumansur as his senior depute and lieutenant.

 

In 05/2009 Ahmed  Godane issued a blood-curdling jihadist video called entitled "At your service, Osama". In it, he urged all Somalis to follow the al Qaeda leader, and vowed that "the wars will not end until Islamic Sharia is implemented in all continents in the world."
