Nimco Farah ‘trafficked Mo Farah into the UK and treated him like a slave.’

Nimco Farah is the woman accused of trafficking four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah to the UK as a child.

Woman accused of trafficking Nimco Farah willing to talk to police

The future running prodigy was brought to Britain by the 54-year-old on a forged visa, but she claimed she was forced to do so and denied treating him cruelly after they arrived in London.

Nimco stated that a last-minute alteration in the original plan was what led to young Mo’s arrival, Ahmed.

He claims she was informed that her visa included three children.

Since Sir Mo, now 39, was brought in as a replacement when a third youngster dropped out, the then-9-year-old future Olympic champion came in under a fictitious name.

Speaking for the first time following Sir Mo’s remarks on a BBC show, Ahmed, 33, said: “My mother did nothing wrong.

She claimed to have been a young mother of two who had been given a paper and instructed to bring a specific individual and suffered coercion. She was informed, “They are not going to let you into the country if you just take two children and there are three children on the visa.”

“My mother said that she risked everything to bring him with us and cared for him like her own kid just to be accused of these horrible things.”

While the young kid who bore his name went on to become one of the greatest British athletes of all time, the real Mohamed Farah was left behind in East Africa.

Nimco also told Ahmed she was sold a sob story that Sir Mo — who last week revealed his real name is Hussein Abdi Kahin — had a severe burn that needed NHS treatment in the UK.

Fight Allegations

Ahmed said his mum has vowed to fight allegations she was involved in trafficking Sir Mo from Djibouti to London in 1991 and forcing him into domestic slavery.

The Met Police are investigating the claims.

Ahmed added: “She was living in Djibouti with her husband, my dad, Mukhtar Farah, who had emigrated to London, and he arranged for UK visas so she could join him with my elder brother Wahib and me.

“She said my dad also arranged for a visa for his oldest son from his first marriage — that’s the real Mohamed Farah — who was living in Nairobi in Kenya at the time.”

However, Mohamed was unable to join them in time for the journey for unknown reasons, so a plan was made to bring another child in his place.

Nimco revealed to Ahmed that Hussein, who later became Sir Mo, was helped along by Nimco’s mother Aisha, who passed away in 2005.

He had left the civil conflict in Somalia and was now residing with an uncle in Djibouti.

A social estate flat in Hounslow, West London, was home to Nimco, her three children, and her husband Mukhtar. According to Sir Mo, he was required to cook, clean, and bathe the other children.

Split up

She moved to Southall, a nearby town, where she raised her sons Wahib, 35, Ahmed, 33, and Mahad, 27. She and Mukhtar split up in the middle of the 1990s.

By that time, Sir Mo had relocated to live with Kinesis, a woman he considered to be his aunt.

Because of Nimco’s low English skills, she talked through Ahmed, who was expelled from the country in 2016 for a knife offense and now resides in the capital city of Somaliland, Hargeisa, where he works as a taxi driver.

He says he discovered the family secret when he was nine years old and maintains contact with the actual Mohamed Farah, who is 40 years old and attempting to establish a new life in Europe.
