“Vivian Chukwuemeka will today face the Athletics Federation of Nigeria in Abuja, to defend herself in the case of doping levelled against her. This is coming four months after officials of the federation told the world that the former commonwealth champion tested positive to performance enhancing drugs in Berlin during the IAAF World Championship which held in August.
Chukwuemeka, Amaka Ogoegbunam and Gloria Kemasuede were reported to have tested positive to banned substances.
While Kemasuede admitted to taking the drugs and began her two years ban immediately, Chukwuemeka maintained her innocence. Ogoegbunam however alleged that Chukwuemeka gave her the drugs, but Chukwuemeka has so far maintained that the claim was a figment of Ogoegbunam’s imagination.”
