The Ghanaian representatives were denied the services of Anokye Badu in the tie against AS Vita Club due to the failed test and have already released a communiqué clearing the air on why Badu failed the test.
In a statement signed by club’s CEO Albert Ayitey Commey, Aduana Stars confirmed the news but explained that the player took the drugs unknowingly.
"We met with our player Anorkye Badu Stephen and his senior brother, Major Kwame Baah. The player admitted administering the said drug Prednisolone and Prednisone, out of ignorance"
"He visited the drug store and complained of chest and thigh pain and was given the above mentioned drugs.
"He did not inform the club doctor of this self medication but did indeed complain of the chest pain to the assistant coach.
"We therefore deduce that the player administered the drug out of ignorance.", portion of the letter sent to CAF reads.
Aduana Stars FC won the first leg 2-1 but slammed to a 2-0 defeat in the return leg in DR Congo to put their quarter hopes in the 2018 CAF confederation on a tight rope.
