The Federal High Court in Lagos State has convicted Anuoluwapo Adepoju, a medical doctor and founder of MedContour Services Ltd., for conducting a failed plastic surgery that led to the death of a lady identified as Nneka Onwuzuligbo in 2020.

This conviction was announced by Babatunde Irukera, the former Director-General of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), on Friday, May 17.

In his tweet, Irukera, using the X (Twitter) 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 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.”

Recall that in 2020, the FCCPC arraigned Adepoju on five counts before Justice Mohammed Liman.

In April of the same year, the commission sealed MedContour, the plastic surgery hospital owned by the second defendant, due to suspicions of illegal activities.

The FCCPC accused the cosmetic surgeon of ignoring summonses to appear and produce certain documents.
