Halima Abubakar

Ailing actress Halima Abubakar has said she will not be returning to the movie industry.

The actress through her management, made the announcement in an Instagram post on Monday.

The post read: “Halima Abubakar quits acting. We are so grateful for all the prayers, God bless you all. We love you all. Thank you for your support. She is so downcast. She really did love acting.”

This comes after Halima announced on Instagram that she had been treating an undisclosed illness for a long time. The actress also accused the president of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide Apostle Johnson Suleman of being responsible for the illness.

The 37-year-old has been dishing out series of threats to the cleric who she claimed was her lover.

The actress who accused the Apostle of being ‘diabolic’ claimed she agreed to date him at the time because the cleric told her he had separated from his wife.

Responding to the allegations through his legal team, Apostle Suleman warned the actress to discontinue her attacks on his personality or risk being dragged before the court of law.

Born on June 12, 1985, Halima began her acting career in 2001.

She has starred in movies such as Men in Love, Slip of Fate, Tears of a Child, White Hunters and Area Mama.
