Former 1500m world champion Asbel Kiprop has asked the National Police Service (NPS) to relieve him of his duties.
In a Facebook post, Kiprop who maintains that he was falsely accused of doping has threatened to use his gun to gain “some justice.”
The athlete who was last week handed a four year ban has further asked the IAAF to pick the medals because he no longer wants them on his wall.
“I pray to National Police Service to dismiss me Now. Before I use their machinery to earn myself Justice.Kindly IAAF come take your medals. I don’t need any on my house wall,” he wrote on Facebook.
In a separate post made last night, Kiprop condemned those who have failed to stand with him but should he die, will praise him at his funeral.
To these people, he said: “They can’t stand with me now & for me to earn justice but if I die today; They will attend my send off to testify my legacy & preach my legacy!!!
Don’t welcome them.”
Unable to prove his innocence, the athlete gave up the fight after he could raise funds to pay his defence team. Asbel Kiprop facebook post

According to Kiprop, money exchanged hands and his sample switched with one that was contaminated.
In his system on November 27, 2017 was EPO.
