The Federal High Court in Lagos State has convicted Dr. Anuoluwapo Adepoju, founder of MedContour Services, for a botched plastic surgery that led to the death of Nneka Onwuzuligbo in 2020.

Justice Mohammed Liman sentenced Adepoju to a one-year jail term, with the option to pay a ₦100,000 fine instead.

Former Director-General of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), Babatunde Irukera, expressed his satisfaction with the ruling.

“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.
