Cosmetic surgery goes wrong, Abuja judge and therapist clash

    Published By:

    A skin-care therapist, Pamela Onyeagusi, has raised the alarm that an Abuja National Industrial Court judge, Justice Zainab Bashir, is after her life following unsuccessful cosmetic procedures.

    Justice Bashir accused the therapist of damaging her skin, adding that she had to travel out of the country to treat herself.

    According to her, “She actually sent her driver that day (May 8) to pay me $2,000, and on May 10, she paid the balance of N500,000 for the services rendered. She came to my office on a referral from one of my clients. When she came, I didn’t know she was a judge. She wanted facial, thigh and stomach treatments. She had acne on her face, black thighs, stretch marks and also wanted laser hair removal.

    “She had facial treatment and because of the many blackheads on her face, we used an extractor on her. Her thighs were really bad and when she requested the treatment, I told her it was quite painful and not advisable for her since she had undergone previous liposuction and other cosmetic surgeries.

    “But she insisted that I should do it, that she didn’t like the way her thighs looked. So, she spent about three hours in our facility that day and, afterwards, she sent her driver to pay $2,000 cash and the balance of N500,000 was paid on May 10. However, she complained about her face breaking out which I told her was as a result of the acne; she came to my place and I used ice to massage it for her. I later advised her to use honey and even sent her the type of honey to apply.

    “For her thighs, I advised her to avoid putting pressure on it and that she should relax and avoid moving around for some days. However, she travelled the very next day, being May 9. She even did double trips to Jos and Lagos. By May 13, she called and requested a refund of the money she paid for the services.

    “Before her call, the client who referred her to me called and told me she was a judge and has been complaining that she didn’t get satisfaction from my procedure and so, I should refund her.

    “So, when she called and said she wanted a refund, I didn’t even mind that I did render a service to her. I just refunded her since she was not satisfied and for the sake of peace.

    “I did not hear anything from her again until sometime in September, when I felt I should check up on her. Being a business owner, I felt it was irresponsible of me to allow an unsatisfied customer to go with such an impression, so I felt I should at least extend some courtesy. Little did I know I was courting trouble by calling her. The moment she picked the call, she started warning and threatening me. That once she returned from the United States, she would teach me a lesson.”

    However, in a swift reaction, the judge described as lies, Onyeagusi’s position, saying that her letter to the beautician was not after her life, but on a legal route to address the injustice done to her. A letter signed by her lawyer, Ganiyu Bello, which was seen by reporters claimed that Onyeagusi criminally misrepresenting herself as a professional and skincare specialist, adding that she was negligent and reckless, such that she burnt her right thigh during the procedure.

    The judge said she patronised the beautician based on her claim of being a professional with requisite knowledge in removing stretch marks and skin scars arising from surgery, using laser procedure. The judge has promised to charge Onyeagusi to court if urgent steps were not taken to redress the injustice done to her.”
