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

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.
