In the United Arab Emirates, Patience Sopuru Davidson, a Nigerian woman, was imprisoned for alleged carelessness.
This was revealed to Dubai Police on November 14, 2022, by a Twitter user going by the handle @Chetexxx5.
Chetaxxx5 claims that her younger sister, a caregiver at the Al Ain Center for Care and Rehabilitation Center of the Disabled in Abu Dhabi, was given a one-month jail sentence for exceeding the allotted time in the restroom, which caused one of her students to cut his ear.
On October 15, 2022, Sopuru was scheduled for release; however, nothing has been heard from her since.
“Salam halaikum, I want to bring to you notice about my younger sister who is a caregiver at Al-Ain center for care and rehabilitation, on the 15th of September 2022, we got a message from her ex colleague that she was arrested for staying 30 minutes in the bathroom and one of her students cut his ears by himself,” the tweet reads.
“She was taken to the police station in Al-Ain and immediately jailed for a month for her negligence, October 15th is believed to be a month, till date we have not heard from my sister, the HR are not replying us
