Judge Absent As Self-Acclaimed Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr Anu of Med Contour Appears in Court Today

The scheduled trial of a Lagos-based cosmetic surgeon, Dr Anuoluwapo Adepoju, whose services allegedly resulted in the death of one Mrs Nneka Onwuzuligbo, was stalled on Thursday before the Federal High Court in Lagos as the trial judge, Justice Mohammed Liman, did not sit.

The court’s registrar said the case had been adjourned till a date to be fixed.

Adepoju was arraigned last Friday on five counts, in which she was accused of blocking a probe into the circumstances leading to her client’s death.

The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, which is arraigning the specialist, blamed her for disregarding summons by the organization to show up and produce certain reports. 

Adepoju was charged along her Med Contour Services Limited. 

In a six-section affirmation of finishing investigation appended to the charge sheet, the FCCPC said it got grumblings against Adepoju from one Marlene Oluwakemi, Taiwo Temilade and Vivian Onwuzuligbo that the specialist's administrations "are perilous for buyers," and that she made "bogus, deceiving and misleading portrayal corresponding to the promoting of their organization." 

It stated, "specifically, the previously mentioned Vivian Onwuzuligbo, an individual from the Mrs Nnneka Miriam Barbara Onwuzuligbo (presently perished) family, claimed that the deceased kicked the bucket because of the fake respondents' restorative medical procedure and she is aware of the occasions that prompted the destruction of the deceased." 

The arraigning counsel for the FCCPC, Babatunde Irukera, said the episodes occurred between April 15 and May 4, 2020, at No. 11a Ladi Alakija Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos. 

Irukera said Adepoju acted in opposition to areas 33(3)(a) and 113(4)(a) of the FCCPC Act 2018 and was subject to be rebuffed under segments 33(3) and 113(1) of a similar Act, among others. 

Be that as it may, Adepoju argued not blameworthy to the charges
