Court views Doctor Anu To be liable over death of patient during costimetic surgery

Dr Anu Adepoju has been found liable over a failed buttocks surgery in 2020 which prompted the passing of the patient.

A Fedral High Court in Lagos State has sentenced Dr. Anuoluwapo Adepoju, the founder of MedContour Services Ltd., for directing a failed plastic surgery that prompted the demise of Nneka Onwuzuligbo a long time back.

This was unveiled on Friday by previous Director-General of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), Babatunde Irukera in a tweet.

He 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.”

Irukera added,

“Dr. Anu Adepoju and her medical practice were convicted on all five counts charged by the 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.”

Review that the in 2020, FCCPC summoned Adepoju on five counts before Justice Mohammed Liman. The charges included allegations that the cosmetic surgeon overlooked calls by the agency to show up and deliver specific document.
