More than two-month after the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC, sealed Medcontour plastic surgery clinic in Lagos state, the doctor in charge was today arraigned in court.
Dr Adepoju Anuoluwapo & MedContour were both arraigned at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi “under criminal charges of failure to comply with FCCPC’s requirements in an investigation; appear & provide info relevant to ongoing investigation”, according to the FCCPC.
It was recalled that Medcontour clinic was sealed off when a lady, “Vick”, called out Dr Anuoluwapo (a.k.a Dr Anu) on social media, following challenges she has been facing after a breast augmentation performed by the doctor went wrong.
The lady claimed she paid Dr Anu N1,650,000 for the treatment but has been in pain afterward.
On the development of the case, FCCPC posted on it’s Twitter page on Friday; “FGN v. Dr. Anu Adepoju & Medcontour: Defendant arrested & brought to court under criminal charges of failure to comply with FCCPC’s requirements in an investigation; appear & provide info relevant to ongoing investigation.
Prosecution led by Babatunde Irukera, CEO, FCCPC”.
