“For now, there is no official statement from the chairman of the AFN over the ban placed on Blessing Okagbare by the AIU.”
Chioma Ajunwa-Opara said Okagbare’s residing in the United States means she had “a better knowledge than those (athletes) living in Nigeria.”
Okagbare was handed the ban for multiple breaches of anti-doping rules by the AIU on Friday.
Okagbare was provisionally suspended before the 100 metres semi-finals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics last year.
Chukwuebuka Enekwechi said he only has one jersey and has to wash it at night in preparation for the next day’s games.
The announcement comes amidst accusations from the athletes of shabby treatment by sports officials.
Chimezie Metu has slammed sports minister Sunday Dare for humiliating the country’s athletes at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics.
Brume has won Nigeria’s first Olympics medal in 13 years.
Nigeria did not meet the minimum testing requirements under Rule 15 for 10 athletes.
The development came less than a day after she qualified for the semi finals of the 100 metre.
