Victor Osimhen faces multiple drug tests after Cameroon clash

Nigeria‘s star striker, Victor Osimhen, has become the subject of multiple random doping tests conducted by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) during the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023.

The revelations came to light after Osimhen’s standout performance in the round of 16 clash against Cameroon, raising eyebrows and sparking speculation among fans.

The 25-year-old forward has been a key figure for the Super Eagles in the tournament held in Ivory Coast, playing a crucial role in securing back-to-back quarterfinal berths for Nigeria at AFCON.

Victor Osimhen’s impressive display against Cameroon, where Nigeria secured a 2-0 victory, included a masterful performance with relentless running and an assist.

Photojournalist Pooja Media, a reliable source in football reporting, shared the information about Osimhen’s repeated doping tests through a post on

Pooja’s post read,

“CAF has randomly picked Victor Osimhen MULTIPLE times after games at AFCON for dope tests.”

The disclosure has fueled discussions among fans, with some interpreting the testing frequency as a nod to Osimhen’s exceptional contributions to Nigeria’s AFCON campaign.

While the repeated selections could be coincidental, Pooja added a touch of humor to the situation, suggesting that CAF should extend their testing to Nigerian youths running in traffic, playfully anticipating a similar outcome.

The tongue-in-cheek remark reflects the heightened enthusiasm surrounding Victor Osimhen and the perception that the doping tests may be a backhanded compliment to the Napoli striker’s outstanding performances.
