Lagos Court Convicts Cosmetic Surgeon Over Client’s Death


Dr Anuoluwapo Adepoju, a medical doctor and the founder of MedContour Services Ltd., has been convicted by the Federal High Court in Lagos of performing a failed plastic surgery that ended in the death of Nneka Onwuzuligbo in 2020.

Babatunde Irukera, a former Director-General of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) made the disclosure in a statement posted on his X page on Friday, May 17.

In his tweet, Irukera wrote: “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 in all 5 counts charged by FCCPC. The wheel of justice may grind slowly, but we must see it through.

“What we need are enforced with audacity and the will to prosecute competently and diligently. Good day for consumers of professional services.”

It would be recalled that in 2020, the FCCPC charged Adepoju with five offences before Justice Mohammed Liman.
The FCCPC accused the cosmetic surgeon of ignoring the agency’s summons to attend and show a certain document.
