Uber driver arrested for allowing female genital mutilation of daughter after ‘unwittingly telling an anti-FGM campaigner’

An Uber driver was arrested for allowing female genital mutilation to be carried out on his daughter after he told an anti-FGM campaigner in his taxi, a court heard.

The 29-year-old was making small talk with charity worker Sami Ullah when the conversation turned to FGM and he revealed his seven-year-old daughter had a ‘small cut.’

After the 10-minute journey, Mr Ullah, a junior trustee for the charity Integrate, used the app’s feedback service to identify the Somalian driver before reporting him to police.
