Popular Plastic Surgeon, Ayo Aranmolate In Soup!…How Abuja Lawyer Died In His Care After Failed Buttock Enlargement Surgery



Popular Lagos-based plastic surgeon, Dr. Ayobami Rasheed Aranmolate, the Executive Medical Director at Grandville Medical and Laser, is presently in the eye of the storm. His presently state of predicament is as a result of a failed buttock enlargement surgery he performed on an Abuja-based lawyer and entrepreneur, Enobong Akpabio,

FIRSTWEEKLY gathered that Enobong died on Thursday, 15 August 2019, from complications arising from a liposuction surgery at Aranmolate’s private medical facility in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja. 

The death of the very promising young businesswoman has now become a subject of controversy within the society and social media sphere. Not only is Enobong’s death painful, the circumstances which led to the tragic incident is causing a lot of outrage among her friends and family members. 

According to sources, Enobong, who runs Food Arena, a food catering business in Abuja, was in sound health before she went for the operation, which ultimately claimed her life.

Aranmolate, the surgeon, who performed the buttock enhancement surgery on Enobong, came under attack, after he posted on his social media page, advertisement containing gory pictures of a ‘’successful surgical procedure’’ which was mistaken as the picture of the deceased.

Infuriated by the pictures, friends and family of Enobong, as well as concerned Nigerians, launched an attack on Aranmolate and his clinic, which boasts of strong celebrity clientele. They expressed disappointment that instead of a statement of remorse about her death, Aranmolate, insensitively, resorted to using her pictures for advertisement. 

In his defence, Aranmolate explained that Enobong had surgery in his facility on that tragic Thursday in August, but she lost blood, which led to blood transfusion. He added that during the blood transfusion, the deceased reacted to the blood and the blood was stopped and sent to the blood bank for a re-check.

Aranmolate explained that he noticed that the deceased would need more monitoring and care, which necessitated her being transferred to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) where she died three days after her surgery.

However, some aggrieved friends of the deceased, have dismissed Aranmolate’s submission. They blamed him for Enobong’s death. According to this group of friends, “The doctor performed three surgeries on the deceased on the same day, with little or no adequate facility. They claimed Aranmolate gave Enobong a blood transfusion that reacted because it was not compatible. He also reportedly deposited fats in her lungs and this led to her inability to breathe. According to an aggrieved source, “The oxygen that was supplied to enable Enobong to breathe refused to work. The doctor and his team punctured Enobong’s blood vessel and left her to bleed to death.” 

But Aranmolate insisted that doctors do not have control over blood, as it is what the blood bank provides after the patient’s samples have been sent to the blood bank for cross-matching that is used. 

What seems to have furthered angered Enobong’s friends and family the more is the fact that Aranmolate has refused to show remorse ever since the tragic incident occurred. According to a family source, who spoke to FIRST WEEKLY on condition of anonymity, “Aranmolate is a quack surgeon. His license should be suspended, if not revoked. We want to advise ladies who rush to him and other quacks to undergo plastic surgery. Aranmolate in particular, should be investigated. He is so insensitive. Can you imagine that hardly had our sister died, than this quack doctor was showing off pictures of his wife and daughter, vacationing abroad on his Instagram page? How does he think the family and loved ones of the lady that died in his care will feel?, she asked rhetorically.

The remains of Enobong Akpabio were laid to rest on Tuesday 20 August, 2019, in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state.
