Lagos Surgeon Anu Adepoju Convicted Over Failed Buttocks Enlargement

May 17, (THEWILL)- The Federal High Court, Lagos, has convicted Anu Adepoju, a medical doctor and founder of MedContour Services Ltd., who conducted a failed plastic surgery that resulted in the death of Nneka Onwuzuligbo in 2020.

The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) had in 2020, arraigned Adepoju before Justice Mohammed Liman, on a five-count charge bordering on refusal to honour an invitation for an investigation into post-body surgery complications, among others.

Delivering a ruling in the case that spanned four years, Justice Mohammed Liman found Adepoju guilty and sentenced her to a one-year jail term. She was, however, given an option of N100,000, in lieu of the jail term.

Reacting to the development in a post on X, Babatunde Irukera, a former director-general of FCCPC, said the case has strengthened the accountability framework for society and professionals.

“Today is a day of pride for me that I personally prosecuted Anu Adepoju & 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 & grow.

“Dr Anu Adepoju & 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 & will to prosecute competently & diligently. Good day for consumers of professional services”, the post read.
