The Federal Competiton and Consumer Protection Commission has endorsed the indefinite suspension of a Lagos surgeon, Dr. Anuoluwapo Adepoju, over issues bordering on the death of one of her patients.
FCCPC said the suspension of the surgeon was done by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria.
The surgeon allegedly operated on a patient in Lagos in December 2018, a development that did not pan out well, as it eventually led to the death of the patient.
The Head, Public Relations, FCCPC, Ondaje Ijagwu, said in a statement made available to our correspondent in Abuja on Tuesday that the suspension would persist pending full disposition of disciplinary proceedings.
He said, “The Federal Competiton and Consumer Protection Commission welcomes the Medical and Dental Council’s decision to impose interim measures suspending Dr. Anuoluwapo Adepoju indefinitely from practicing medicine pending full and final disposition of disciplinary proceedings.
