A Federal High Court in Lagos has fixed January 23, 2024 to give judgement in the case of alleged failed surgery filed against a surgeon, Anuoluwapo Adepoju.

Reporters learnt on Monday that the case had been held virtually by the court and parties had adopted their addresses.

Adepoju is charged by the Federal Competition and Consumers Protection Commission (FCCPC) alongside her Clinic, MedContour Services Ltd, on five counts bordering on refusal to honour an invitation for investigation into a post-body surgery complications.

The prosecution also alleged that without sufficient cause, the first defendant also refused and failed to produce documents which she was required to produce in compliance with the commission’s notice of investigation dated April 14, 2020.

The defendant was alleged to have prevented and obstructed the commission from carrying out its investigation into the said issue.

Adepoju was re-arraigned on July 17, 2020 alongside her medical outfit before Justice Mohammed Liman.

She pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail on self-recognition.

Justice Liman was subsequently transferred out of the Lagos division of the court, but he still presides over the case on a fiat.

Adepoju initially filed a no-case submission, noting that the prosecution did not establish anything against her. But the court on April 7, 2022 rejected it.

Adepoju was the sole witness in her own defence.
