Med Contour boss, Dr Anu’s Trial Stalled Due To Judge’s Absence

The trial of the beauty surgeon who was arraigned over the death of her client has been postponed to a later date.

The trial of controversial cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Anuoluwapo Adepoju, at the Federal High Court in Lagos yesterday July 9, was stalled due to the absence of the trial judge, Justice Mohammed Liman.

Dr Anu who owns Med Contour, was dragged before the court by the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission FCCPC over the death of one of her clients, shunning summons by the agency to appear and produce certain documents among other offences. She appeared before the court for the first time last Friday, July 3 on a five-count charge.

Counsel to FCCPC, Babatunde Irukera, said it received complaints against Dr. Anu from one Marlene Oluwakemi, Taiwo Temilade, and Vivian Onwuzuligbo that Dr. Anu’s services “are unsafe for consumers,” and that she made “false, misleading and deceptive representation in relation to the marketing of their services.”

“In particular, the above-mentioned Vivian Onwuzuligbo, a member of the Mrs Nnneka Miriam Barbara Onwuzuligbo (now deceased) alleged that the deceased died as a result of the failed defendants’ cosmetic surgery and she is privy to the events that led to the demise of the deceased.”part of the court document read.

He told the court that the incidents happened at No. 11a Ladi Alakija Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos between April 15 and May 4, 2020. The counsel argued that Dr. Anu’s conduct is contrary to sections 33(3)(a) and 113(4)(a) of the FCCPC Act 2018 and was liable to be punished under sections 33(3) and 113(1) of the same Act, among others.

Dr. Anu pleaded not guilty to the five counts. She was thereafter granted bail.

The case was adjourned to today July 9 for commencement of trial. However, due to the absence of the judge, the court’s registrar said the case had been adjourned till a date to be fixed.
