The Federal Government of Nigeria has charged one Dr. Adepoju Anuoluwapo and her cosmetic surgery firm, Med Contour Ltd at the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos for allegedly obstructing its investigation into circumstances that led to her client’s death.
Dr. Anuoluwa were charged before the court by the federal government through the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC).
This sad event has some resemblance with the “Has Ridge Hospital reduced to a slaughterhouse? ” case in Ghana.
The defendant and her firm were arraigned on five-count charge but pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
The FCCPC received complaints by three consumers’ Marlene Adejumo Oluwakemi, Taiwo Omolola Temilade, and Vivian Onwuzuligbo that Dr. Anuoluwapo’s body enhancement business is unsafe.
She was in court over allegations among which include that of a failed cosmetic surgery carried out by her which led to the death of one Mrs. Nneka Miriam Barbra Onwuzuligbo.
In April, the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) shut down the Med Contour Clinic and began investigations on the activities of the clinic.
Justice Mohammed Liman admitted her to bail on self-recognizance in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The presiding judge adjourned till July 9 for the commencement of trial.
Earlier in the proceeding, the judge dismissed a preliminary objection by Dr. Anuoluwa’s lawyer, Marian Jones, questioning the validity of the charges and the court’s jurisdiction to entertain the charges.
