“She was no longer sweet in bed “Agnes Tirop’s husband claims he killed wife over infidelity
Fresh details have indicated the slain Olympian Agnes Tirop’s husband, Ibrahim Kipchumba Rotich, confessed to killing her. According to Ibrahim, Tirop was no longer sweet in bed after cheating on him with a GSU officer and that killed his ego.
“Nilishindwa kuvumilia.Nilijipata tu nimemuua.She was no longer sweet in bed baada ya kulala na Kirui” Ibrahim allegedly said.
Tirop, who was found murdered in her house in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet county, was living with Rotich but their marriage was troubled. According to the Keiyo North Police Commander Tom Makori, Tirop’s father, on the evening of Tuesday, October 12, filed a report that the athlete was missing. On Wednesday, October 13, at around 9 am, Makori said Tirop’s husband called his parents informing them that he had committed the heinous crime and sought God’s forgiveness.
After the call, the 25-year-old’s family, friends and neighbours rushed to her house and after breaking in, found her body lying in bed in a pool of blood. Tirop’s lifeless body was discovered with stab wounds in the abdomen. Marital issues A source disclosed to local dailies that Tirop had marital issues with her husband and frequently fought. The two reportedly sought arbitration from family members on several occasions. Neighbours said the deceased returned to the house on Monday, October 11, having left weeks earlier after a disagreement. “She had not been home since returning from Japan. Tirop said she was physically abused and fled to the training camp to seek refuge. She had just returned home following the arbitration by the family and friends,” one neighbour said.
Police are pursuing Rotich who is the main suspect in Tirop’s murder. He is said to have escaped after the incident. Last moments with lover Pictures obtained by reporters show the two lovers having an awesome time together and so in love. This was reportedly her last sweet moment in the arms of Rotich who was also her coach. In the heartwarming picture, the 25-year-old was in the arms of the man and they were all smiles.
