Nigeria’s 200 metres record holder Divine Oduduru has been suspended indefinitely by the Athletics Intergrity Unit (AIU) over two doping allegations.
The sprinter has been charged by the AIU on the count of “The possession and or use or attempted use of multiple substances.”
The Athletics integrity unit has notified the 26 year old of his immediate suspension in a statement that reads:
“The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) has notified Divine Oduduru of two potential Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) and is seeking a six-year ban against the Nigerian,”
“The sprinter has been notified of potential ADRVs for possession (Rule 2.6 of the World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules; ADR) and/or use or attempted use of multiple Prohibited Substances (Rule 2.2 ADR). He has been provisionally suspended immediately.”
He faces a possible six year ban and becomes the second Nigerian Sprinter to be hit with doping allegations as Grace Nwokocha was suspended for failing a doping test at 2022 Commonwealth Games.
