The doctor at the centre of the row over an unpaid guest house bill, says she felt she was living in a TV show.
Dr. Fuambai Ahmadu spent the night behind bars after she was arrested for not paying for her stay at a west bay guest house.
The former UNICEF consultant, says being an anthropologist, she used the experience to try and learn local perspectives.
“I used to watch the program, arrested abroad, and I was so surprised and taken by some of these stories and these narratives of peoples’ horrific experiences,” said Dr. Ahmadu.
“I never once thought that i could actually be living it. So I’m an anthropologist and i did try to look at it in a different way, and try to understand it from the experience from a local perspective if i can say that.”
Charges of obtaining services by deception were dropped in court Tuesday (17 May) after Dr. Ahmadu paid the outstanding debt of around $230.
Cayman 27 contacted the man at the guest house who said he didn’t own it, and was just looking after it for a friend. We asked him for comment, but he told us he had nothing to say.
