Halima told Punch:
“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
