Obinwannem News Doping offence and the Enyimba captain Oladapo

Recall that Oladapo was banned from all football activities for a year by CAF on Tuesday after his test sample came back positive for a banned drug.

Augustine Oladapo has confirmed that he simply took painkillers as advised by his club doctor, despite CAF accusations that the Enyimba midfielder failed a dope test during a CAF Confederations Cup match.

However, Oladapo indicated in an interview with that the club will fight the CAF verdict because it is not in his nature to drink or smoke.

He expressed confidence that the decision will be overturned in the end.

“It came to me as a shock. I wasn’t expecting this from CAF. I’ve done this dope test four times.

I did it in the national team at the CHAN, with Enyimba twice and I have always been confident that I will never fail a test”.

“I don’t drink or smoke, it’s not my lifestyle. I only took a drug prescribed by the club doctor, a pain relief medication, which the club doctor prescribed and he presented the same to CAF”.

“We were given the option of an appeal and the Club is on it.”
