Popular Kannywood actress Ummi Ibrahim has revealed that her loss of N450million to a conman was the reason she contemplated suicide
The loss, in what she deemed to be her biggest investment, had made her fall into depression.
She shared her financial agony in an interview with Baraka Bashir, on VOA Hausa at the weekend.
She said the conman had been her business partner for sometime, until he showed his true colour, after tempting her with crude oil business.
“I didn’t know the man is a fraudster. He defrauded me of huge amount of money and ran away. I sent him N450 million in dollars and he left with it.
“I called his number severally but it is switched off. When I checked his social media accounts, I found out that he had blocked me in all of them.”
“I now live in Lagos. It was here that I met him and this is not the first time I had done business with him.
“What surprised me was that he came with some Europeans to prove to me that the business was real and a serious one. So, I never believed he will cheat me.”
“This days i live a MISERABLE life to the extend(sic) that I want to commit SUICIDE ,but please non of any body should ask me why ?
“All I need from you people is a PRAYER”, she wrote.
