I Contemplated Suicide After Being Duped Of N450m, Kannywood’s Ummi Ibrahim

by Adeoya Femi

Ummi Ibrahim, Kannywood actress better known as Ummi Zee Zee, says she contemplated suicide after losing the sum of N450 million to a fraudulent business scheme.

The Hausa film star had earlier taken to her Instagram page to disclose that she “is miserable and feels like committing suicide” due to a reason she did not reveal at the time.

“This day, I live a miserable life to the extent that I want to commit suicide, but please non of anybody should ask me why? All I need from you people is a prayer,” she had written.

Her post had stirred mixed reactions with a number of her fans taking to the comment section to express concern over her wellbeing.

But in a recent chat with Voice of America (Hausa), Ummi said she poured out her frustration on social media because she was defrauded of N450 million by a business partner whom she had been working with for some time.

“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,” she said in Hausa.

“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 a 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. I didn’t know what to do.”
