That was 30 minutes after the murder of his wife Bettie Jennifer.
She was shot dead in Maryland, United States.
Bettie Jenifer, according to the report 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 made his escape in a getaway vehicle.
The Maryland Police have declared the killer wanted.
However, the US Police revealed recently that Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh, is now a prime suspect in his wife’s murder a few days after a sketch of the suspect, who shot Bettie Jennifer dead, was released.
George Matthews, a spokesman for the US police agency in Washington, D.C. who confirmed that Chris Attoh is now a suspect in his wife’s murder, said they are now investigating the actor’s tweet which came up few minutes before the murder of his wife.
Giving details about the physical appearance of the killer the police described him as “a black male with a thick build and black hair, wearing a dark shirt and pants.”
Chris Attoh and Bettie Jenifer got married at a private event at North Kaneshie, Accra, Ghana in October 2018. This was 10 months after divorcing DamiloIa Adegbite, a Nigerian actor with whom he has a son.
Prior to the week of the murder, Chris Attoh sparked speculation on social media that all was not well with his second marriage after he deleted all of Bettie’s pictures from his social media pages.
It was alleged that they had broken up but neither of the two has publicly confirmed or denied the story.
Bettie Jennifer was 44-year-old as of the time of her murder.
