Lagos medical doctor jailed over failed plastic surgery

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos State has convicted and sentenced a medical doctor and founder of MedContour Services, Anuoluwapo Adepoju, for conducting a failed plastic surgery that resulted in the death of one Nneka Onwuzuligbo in 2020.

Justice Mohammed Liman found her guilty and sentenced her to a one-year jail term.

However, she was given the option of paying a ₦100,000, in lieu of the jail term.

While reacting to the judgement, a former Director-General of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, Babatunde Irukera in a post via his X handle, said he was proud of the development.

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

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

“The wheel of justice may grind slowly, but we must see it through. Good day for consumers of professional services.”
