Popular Kannywood actress, Ummi Zee, has revealed that she was depressed and contemplating taking her own life after losing N450 million to a business partner.
Zee, in an interview with Voice of America (Hausa Service), 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 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.”
