Beauty Therapist Pamela Onyeagusi Accused of Lying Against Judge in Failed Surgery Case



Alleged failed surgery: Abuja beauty therapist, Pamela Onyeagusi lied against judge – Reports

Fresh facts have emerged on the battle between an Abuja Beauty Therapist, Pamela Onyeagusi, also known as Lotela Beauty against Justice Z.M. Bashir of the National Industrial Court over an alleged failed cosmetic surgery.

This newspaper learnt that the claim, on Instagram, by Onyeagusi, that she carried out a cosmetic surgery that went wrong on Justice Bashir, and for which her life is allegedly being threatened by the judge, is false, Pamela reportedly told the Federal Competition and Consumer protection Commission (FCCPC).

In December 2022, Pamela had embarked on a series narratives on her instagram page @lotela_beauty against Justice Bashir that the judge threatened to kill her because she carried out a failed cosmetic surgery on her; whereas the service she rendered was facial treatment not cosmetic surgery.

Reports said that Justice Bashir’s legal team comprising three learned silks, namely, S. I. Ameh (SAN), J. S. Okutepa SAN, Samuel Zibiri (SAN), and a host of other lawyers had filed a report at the FCCPC on the matter on behalf of their client.

It was learnt that in the course of the investigations and proceedings launched by the Commission in January 2023, a number of facts unravelled.

Pamela, according to reports, misled the public by deliberately spreading falsehood entitled “cosmetic surgery gone wrong”, whereas no surgery ever took place in accordance with her confession before the commission.

She was said to have admitted that she was not a medical doctor, surgeon, nor trained medical professional, and, as such, could not and did not carry out any surgery on the judge at any time.

Pamela was said to have further admitted that Justice Bashir only came for a routine facial treatment on May 8, 2022 and that in the course of treatment she (Pamela) brought out her laser machine, on which usage she confessed that she was not trained but still went ahead to use it to inflict grievous injury on the judge.

It was further learnt that a number of revelations came to the fore in the process of investigation and hearing by the FCCPC, including the confession by Pamela that she had no qualification in any branch of medicine and that she failed to seek any medical guide while using the laser machine.

Pamela, as learnt, also told the FCCPC that she operated her spa in the dining of her residential apartment without any regulatory/compliance approval for commercial purposes from the relevant government agencies.

In addition, Pamela, according to the findings by the FCCPC, lacked the requisite professional qualification to carry out the type of practice which she did and this led to the injury inflicted on the complainant/Judge.

Ms. Pamela’s only qualification, the Commission reportedly found out, was a certificate of attendance of a two-day online training on permanent make up, which the Commission held strongly as constituting a risk to other unsuspecting members of the public.

It was learnt that after the investigative hearing, the FCCPC arraigned Ms. Pamela on four-counts charge at Court 2, Federal High Court in Abuja.

According to available information, she reportedly acted contemptuously of the court by not causing an appearance in court and thus denied herself the opportunity of being heard on three consecutive sittings, thus necessitating adjournments.

Confirmed reports said that the Court issued a bench warrant for her arrest on May 23, 2023, and she has since then been on the run as all efforts to execute the warrant have proved abortive.

It was gathered that Pamela was now a fugitive, running away from the law, having moved out of her house, changed her SIM card, and even switched telephone numbers at intervals.

It was learnt that a visit to her house at No 6 Inuwa Wada Street, Utako, Abuja by bench warrant-executing officials showed that the place was empty and deserted.

A source close to the development was said to have informed the police that she had fled the country.

Meanwhile, when the matter came up in court on Friday, July 21, 2023, the Court adjourned it to 21st September 2023.

The court, however, gave an order declaring her wanted and freezing her account.

The court further ordered that the FCCPC and other security agencies should declare her wanted via publications in local and international dailies.
