Nigerian caregiver jailed in UAE for staying 30 minutes in bathroom which led to her student cutting off her ear
A Nigerian woman identified as Patience Sopuru Davidson has been jailed for alleged neglect in the United Arab Emirates.
A Twitter user @Chetexxx5, who claimed to be a family member, revealed this to Dubai Police on Monday, November 14, 2022.
According to Chetaxxx5, her younger sister, who works as a caregiver at the Al Ain Disability Care and Rehabilitation Center in Abu Dhabi, was sentenced to one month in prison for staying too long in the bathroom, which led one of his students to cut off his ear.
Sopuru was due to be released on October 15, 2022 but they have not heard from her since then.
“Salam halaikum, I want to let you know about my younger sister who is a caregiver at Al-Ain Care and Rehabilitation Center, on September 15, 2022, we received a message from her ex-colleague that she was arrested for staying 30 minutes in the bathroom and one of her students cut off her own ears,” the tweet read.
