According to the post, the clinic was sealed off due to an open investigation that bothers on illegal activities.

The lady in her post claimed that there are several other disgruntled customers who are also suffering from complications but are afraid to speak out for the fear of online backlash.
Speaking on the closure, the CEO of FCCPC, Babatunde Irukere, said: “Essentially, the allegations are that Med Contour engages in conduct that is considered unprofessional, misleading and potentially injurious.
“Some of its activities are said to have resulted to fatal injuries. We have credible information that they are performing cosmetics surgical procedures in a manner that is inconsistent with law.
“Accordingly, the FCCPC hereby, and by this notice informs Med Contour that it has immediately commenced an investigation pursuant to the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Act (FCCPA)."
