Since the death of Nigeria’s First Lady, Stella Obasanjo, was announced early this morning, rumors have been rife as to the cause of her death. She died at about 02: 35 AM, Nigeria time. An Elendureports.com investigation can now confirm that Stella Obasanjo died due to complications arising from plastic surgery.
Dr. Roger E. Amar had been rumored to be the surgeon who performed the ill-fated surgery. In a letter to Elendureports.com, Agathe Dawson speaking on behalf of Dr. Roger E. Amar of Fat Autograft Muscle Injection (FAMI), said: “We would like to make it very clear that these events (First Lady’s death) were due in no part to Dr. Roger E. Amar and the FAMI Academy, or to any of his clinics.” While consoling President Obasanjo and the Nigerian people on Stella Obasanjo’s death, Dr. Amar said that it was his hope and those in the plastic surgery community that “through continued education and the enforcement of ever more stringent regulations the inherent risks of surgery no longer lead to the loss of any precious life.”
