BREAKING: Lagos Court Convicts Cosmetic Surgeon Adepoju Over Client’s Death

Must read

The Federal High Court in Lagos State has convicted Dr. Anuoluwapo Adepoju, a medical doctor and founder of MedContour Services Ltd., in connection with a failed plastic surgery that led to the death of Nneka Onwuzuligbo in 2020, according to reports by FIJ.

Former Director-General of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), Babatunde Irukera, announced the conviction on Friday via Twitter.

In his tweet, Irukera, using the handle #TundeIrukera, stated, “Today is a day of pride for me that I personally prosecuted Anu Adepoju and her medical practice. Though I’ve left, the case has ended in a conviction strengthening the accountability framework for all in society, professionals or otherwise. This is how society should work and grow.

“Dr. Anu Adepoju and her medical practice convicted on all 5 counts charged by FCCPC. The wheel of justice may grind slowly, but we must see it through. What we need are enforcement with audacity and the will to prosecute competently and diligently. Good day for consumers of professional services.”

In 2020, the FCCPC arraigned Adepoju on five counts before Justice Mohammed Liman. The charges included shunning summons by the agency to appear and produce certain documents.

Further details are expected to follow.
