Investigations by the Greeneblt Police Depart has revealed that Bettie Jenifer, the wife of Ghanaian Actor, Chris Attoh, who was shot dead while leaving her office on Friday, May 10th, was married to two men, one of whom is a notorious drug lord currently serving a 20-year jail term.
According to the police, Bettie was still legally married to 47-year-old Kedrick Jenifer, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore from Texas. Kedrick ran a drug trafficking organization that distributed at least 450kg of cocaine in Baltimore and Woodbridge, Virginia.
The drug lord and Bettie were not divorced before she went on to marry Chris in a ceremony that happened in October last year. The police says Kedrick filed for a divorce on April 9th this year. Bettie Jenifer then filed for divorce six days later.
Reports said the gunman had fled in a vehicle and has since been declared wanted by the Maryland Police.
Police described the suspect as “a black male with a thick build and black hair, wearing a dark shirt and pants.”
Bettie Jenifer had married Chris Attoh, shortly after he divorced his first wife, Nollywood actress, DamiloIa Adegbite, who he shares a son with.
Just last week, Chris Attoh sparked speculation on social media that their marriage was in crisis after he deleted all her photos on his Instagram page.
