Why I wanted to commit suicide -Actress, Ummi Zee Zee

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress


Kannywood actress and singer, Ummi Ibrahim, also called Ummi Zee Zee, has revealed why she made a suicidal post on Instagram days ago.

Recall that the Kannywood actress shared a depressing photo of herself with a suicidal note in the caption.

The post read, “This days I live a MISERABLE life to the extent that I want to commit suicide, but please none of anybody should ask me why? All I need from you is a PRAYER!”

Ummi posted this on Sunday, April 4, 2021 on her Instagram page.

However, the actress has revealed her reason for the suicidal post.

She said she was a victim of fraud and she lost N450 million to a business partner.

Speaking in an interview with Voice of America (Hausa Service), she said: “The reason for my post was because one Igbo man from the Niger Delta, with whom I started crude oil business, said there’s a certain amount of money I had to give for us to start the business, and that I will make half payment and then give the remaining later.

“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.”
