GHANA- The wife of Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh, has been shot dead. According to multiple reports, Bettie Jennifer was killed by an unknown gunman while leaving her office in Maryland in the United States of America on Friday evening May 10th at about 5pm.
Going by reports, Bettie had left the office in the 6300 block of Ivy Lane and was walking to her car when a man armed with a handgun approached her. When she tried to run away, the man followed her and fired at her multiple times, with at least one shot hitting her.
The gunman then fled in a vehicle and has since been declared wanted by the Maryland Police.
Police described the suspect as “a black male with a think build and black hair, wearing a dark shirt and pants.”
Chris Attoh and Bettie Jenifer married at a ceremony in Accra October 2018. This was shortly after divorcing 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.
