The Greenbelt Police Department has stated that Bettie Jenifer, wife to Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh, who was shot dead on Friday, was married to two men, one of whom is a notorious drug lord.
In a statement, by the Police department, Jenifer had been chased through the parking lot of an office building at around 5:00 p.m. before being shot in the head in a targeted and not a random incident.
Greenbelt Police Department, while speaking on the incident, confirmed that the deceased was married to Chris Attoh, following Attoh’s divorce from his first wife, She was also married to 47-year-old Kendrick, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore from Texas.
“Bettie was still legally married to 47-year-old Kendrick Jenifer, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore from Texas. Kendrick 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 say Kendrick filed for divorce on April 9th this year. Bettie Jenifer then filed for divorce six days later.”
Attoh married the deceased in a private ceremony in North Kaneshie, Ghana, less than a year ago following his divorce from popular Nollywood actress, Damilola Adegbite.
