Halima-AbubakarNollywood actress, Halima Abubakar has gone a lot before becoming a successful actress, long time ago, she was bullied as a Student which is why she wants to do a documentary on bullying, she has been working on this project for a while.
Halima said “Yes, the documentary is one of my charity pieces for schools. When it eventually gets out, it will be for schools. Bullying is like the story of my life. I passed through that experience all through my educational life, even now. There was a time I did not write a particular exam because of a threat. They threatened to do things to me if I came for that exam (Statistics). So, I stayed back. I had to sit for that exam the following year.
These were not cultists, “No, they were a group of girls. It was way back in Kano. Perhaps they couldn’t stand my guts. Then, I had started acting. You know, some insecure people sometimes look for people to bully in order to satisfy themselves.
“I was so scared of them that I believed they could really harm me. So, I did not write that exam that day. It was that bad. Sometimes, I cried all day. During my undergraduate days in Kano, I was a victim of severe attacks by these girls.
“I don’t know what to call it, whether envy or insecurity, but they kept me in constant fear. I only had two friends: a guy and a girl (Habiba). They were the two people who stood by me in BUK (Bayero Univeristy, Kano). The funny thing is that after school, we lost contact. God bless them wherever they are.
