Ilhan Omar told friends years ago that the man who went on to become her second husband was, in fact, her brother, DailyMail.com can confirm.
She married him in a Christian ceremony outside of the Minneapolis Somali community so as to keep the marriage secret.
But hardly anyone realized that meant marrying him.
“She said she needed to get papers for her brother to go to school,” Abdihakin Osman Nur , 40, told the Daily Mail. “We all thought she was just getting papers together to allow him to stay in this country. Once she had the papers they could apply for student loans.”
For the first time, one of those friends has come forward to reveal exactly how Omar and Ahmed Elmi scandalized the Somali community in Minneapolis.
Abdihakim Osman is the first person to go on record to speak of how Omar said she wanted to get her brother papers so he could stay in the United States, at a time when she was married to her first husband Ahmed Hirsi.
For his courage, he has now received a death threat and decided to publicly speak about it.
Abdi Nur posted his concerns for his safety on Facebook.
Nur is convinced if something happens to him it will lead back to Ilhan Omar.

My name is Abdihakin Osman Nur and I live in Minneapolis Minnesota . I am an American citizen. I am the person who spoke to the media and said that Ilhan Omar married her brother and made legal papers for him to stay in America , I confirmed that the marriage was fraudulent and that I was personally aware since I was a close friend and neighbor to both Ahmed Hirsi and Ilhan Omar .It is also an open secret in the Minnesota somali community but everyone is afraid of problems from supporters of Ilhan Omar some of whom have felony criminal records . This issues started in August of 2016 and the first media person whom I spoke to was Scott Johnson who writes for Power line blog .I shared his posts on my Facebook and I was met with vicious online harassment and threats including insulting me for being in a wheelchair and insults to my person as a disabled man . They caricatured me as wearing diapers . I finally decided to put them on all the things that they were doing in suppressing the information through intimidation and threats and so I told the writer of daily mail to put it on the record .
Since that day I have received veiled threats about my safety , insults online and threats of a set up in which to have me locked up . I have had fake complaints to try and shut my Facebook down . They have also told a media personality on YouTube to threaten me and she did so live on a YouTube video .
I would like to inform the public and the government of the USA . If anything were to happen to me and my safety that Ilhan Omar and her team will be responsible . I also ask for the support of the American people in case I’m set up or something happens to me because I have talked .
Thanks for your help and understanding.
