Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh’s late wife, Bettie Jenifer who was shot dead just as she closed from work was married to a drug lord.
Bettie who was fatally shot by handgun as she left work on Friday was reportedly married to two men – One of them, the Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh and the other a convicted drug lord.
Jenifer(44) had married second husband actor Chris Attoh in October 2018 in Accra, Ghana — But failed to file for divorce from first husband Kendrick Jenifer until April 9 of this year, NBC News reported.
The convicted drug lord, Jenifer has been serving a 20-year sentence for leading a drug trafficking ring since pleading guilty in 2015.
However, police said they are investigating all angles, including a tweet from Attoh four hours before Jenifer’s murder.
“When it comes to relationships, remaining faithful is never an option but a priority,” he tweeted. “Loyalty is ever…”
After his wife’s death, Attoh’s management said he had no comment.
“We’re casting a wide net, looking at any and all information that could possibly help us apprehend who did this,” Greenbelt Police Department spokesman George Mathews told Fox 5 DC. Greenbelt is a Baltimore suburb, Police said.
“Our investigators do not believe this was random. It was very brazen – it happened in broad daylight in front of multiple witnesses,” Greenbelt Police Department spokesperson George Mathews told Fox 5. “And that’s very concerning, but we do not believe this was a random act.”
