In a surprising turn of events, a Nigerian nurse has been fired and is now facing deportation from the UK after reportedly praying for a dying patient.

The incident, shared by Twitter doctor Dr. Olufunmilayo, sheds light on the strict ethical guidelines within the UK health system that prohibit healthcare professionals from bringing religion into their practice.

Dr. Olufunmilayo explained that even if a patient requests prayer, the healthcare worker should refrain from personally conducting it, instead involving a designated religious figure.
