Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh has finally spoken for the first time after his wife, Bettie Jenifer was murdered in Maryland, USA by an unknown man.
Bettie Jenifer who married Chris Attoh in October 2018 in a private traditional marriage ceremony in Accra was shot dead last Friday in Maryland, USA.
According to police reports, Bettie had closed from her work at the 6300 blocks of Ivy Lane and was heading towards her car when she was attacked by a gunman. Fearing for her life, she fled but was chased down and shot killing her instantly.
The police revealed that the suspect is “a black male with a thick build and black hair, wearing a dark shirt and pants.”
But according to an inside source in a report going viral, Bettie was killed by her bitter cartel boss ex-husband who is in jail. It is alleged that he ordered the hit from prison when he heard that Bettie was now married to the Ghanaian actor.
Chris Attoh’s wife who was brutally murdered on Friday was married to two men according to the Greenbelt Police. The deceased was married to the famous Ghanaian actor and also to a man named Kedrick Jenifer. According to the police, Jenifer was married to Chris Attoh, a well-known actor and TV host in Ghana. The two married in October, following Attoh’s divorce from his first wife and was also married to 47-year-old Kedrick Jenifer, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore.
Information from the U.S. District Attorney’s office claimed that the kingpin’s “Jenifer drug trafficking organization” distributed at least 450 kilograms of cocaine in Baltimore and Woodbridge, Virginia.
“Kedrick Jenifer lived large as a major Baltimore drug dealer, but now he will lose all of his toys and live for two decades in federal prison,” the U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein said. Kedrick Jenifer is believed to have filed for divorce on April 9 and according to court records, Bettie Jenifer also filed for divorce six days later.
Greenbelt police now believe that the shooting was targeted and not just a random incident.
