A popular Kannywood actress, Ummi Ibrahim has opened up on what
pushed her to contemplate committing suicide.

According to her, she lost of N450million to a conman. 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.

”Last Sunday, Ummi had shared with her Instagram followers her
agony. “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. Her post earned
a rebuke from Senator Shehu Sani, who wrote: “You think of your Life
as miserable while you are an inspiration to millions of others.You are
a height and a destination others want to reach.

There is no perfect life and no life without trouble.It just come to us
in different forms and different degrees.“Nature has never promised
us a life without challenges and troubles,but it has given us the soul
to confront them and the spirit to overcome them.What defines us is
not our crisis and problems but how we embrace it and stood up to
it.“When your life is guided by the powers of faith and not
vanities,nothing over excites you or saddens you;and nothing ruins
you.Every man has an app in him and her to defy the odds of life by
viewing them as a passing phase.

You many not see the frustrations and pains of others not because
they don’t have it,but they have the powers to suppress or conceal
it.“When you feel like given up because you failed and you try and
failed again, be comforted the God of those who succeeded is still
the God you are praying to.“Never measure your life in terms of
physical failures and successes but always appreciate the Journey
and the modest impact you made in the life of others.

“The rich and comfortable man you think Is happy is indeed physically
happy but inside of him exist mountains of fears and troubles
concealed in a wrap of vanities”. Ummi carved a name for herself in
Kannywood in the last decade. She starred in popular films such as
“Gender,” “Gambiza” and “Flag of Love”.

And then suddenly stopped acting.
