I Tried To Kill Myself Because I Was Broke- Halima Abubakar

This is not the first time Halima Abubakar would be speaking about her attempted suicide, she once said it on her instagram page, but in this new interview with Punch, Halima shed more light on it and explained how she went broke and was tired of life, how people lied using her name, how people she loved betrayed her, and how her boyfriend couldn’t even save her. Continue below.


If not for divine intervention, actress Halima Abubakar would have been dead by now. She disclosed this in an exclusive chat with Saturday Beats.

The actress said she went into depression some time ago and considered suicide as the only option of getting away from that state. And guess why Halima was depressed and wanted to kill herself -she was broke!

She said, “There were a lot of things that were wrong with me and led to my depression. I was angry, broke, people lied against me and they were also using my name to lie. I was deceived by the people I loved. I was seriously broke at the time and I had lots of responsibilities.

“There were many charity projects I was involved in and I was doing everything with my money. Everything just got to me at the same time and I felt fed-up. I wanted to kill myself because there was nobody to help me. It happened two years ago and it also occurred last year. I thank God I did not kill myself because I realised that nothing is worth it. I was upset with myself when I got back to my senses because the people you want to kill yourself for do not really care about you. It was a terrible phase in my life,” she said.

When asked why her boyfriend could not help her out, Halima said he compounded her case instead of helping out.

“He was not helping matters. I wanted somebody that would listen and not say that I was lying or exaggerating the extent of what I was going through. Whenever I tell him I am sad, he wants to give me money but it is not all about money all the time.


“Yes, I said I was broke but it was not only about money. I was broken emotionally. If there is no hope, I feel I am broken. I needed a listening ear. The definition of broke is relative but Nigerians think it is only about money. Money was also involved. The first major problem I had was money; then I was also emotionally broken,” she said.
