Fear grips Ghanaians in Maryland over murder of Chris Attoh’s wife

The gruesome murder of Bettie Jenifer, wife of famous Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh, last Friday has sent shivers down the spine of many Ghanaian residents in Maryland, USA. The sad incident has also attracted mixed reactions about what might have motivated the murder.

While some suspect it could have been a contract killing, others allege the killing could be punishment for Attoh himself over unvoiced infractions.

When Graphic Online visited the scene of the murder 36 hours after the incident, the police had removed their cordon of the crime scene. However, a couple of police patrol vehicles were parked at different spots close to the crime scene. There was no one available immediately to comment.

Meanwhile, the building in which she worked also houses a school where some Ghanaians are undertaking courses in data management.

Although they refused to comment, they could be heard discussing what they thought actually happened.

According to one, she heard the shots and rushed out but all she saw was a car driving away from the scene of the murder. She could not describe the make of the car because it was slightly dark at the time of the incident.

One student who parked close to the scene had to be escorted to her vehicle before she moved for fear of an attack from the unknown assassin.

Ghana Embassy “No comment”

When contacted, the Ghana Embassy in Washington declined comment on the matter.

“At this point, the Embassy is not going to make any comment on the matter”, an official told Graphic Online in a WhatsApp chat.

Murder report

Jenifer, an American, was gunned down in the parking lot of Capital Office Park, 6301-6421 Ivy Lane, Maryland. The area shares a compound with Crowne Plaza Hotel and other offices.

The area is well landscaped with many trees which makes it possible for anybody to commit crime a escape.

Bettie was reported to have left the office 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.

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.”

The relationship

Chris Attoh and Bettie Jenifer were married at a private event at North Kaneshie, Accra, Ghana in October 2018. This was 10 months after ending his marriage to DamiloIa Adegbite, a Nigerian actor with whom he has a son.

Last week, 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 publicly confirmed or denied the story of a separation.

Chris is believed to be in America but was it not clear whether the police had picked him for questioning.

VGMA 2019 was like SHS funfair – Blakk Rasta

Ghanaian reggae musician and a radio presenter Blakk Rasta has opined has said, performances on the 20th anniversary of Vodafone Ghana Music Awards was no different from Secondary School shows back in the day.

Speaking to host DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, the renowned broadcaster noted that, he has seen lots of fun-fairs and entertainment show while in high school and the just ended 20th VGMA performances were no different from them. “Ghanaians will probably insult me for saying this, but I’m not scared of speaking my mind. A lot of the performances was like what I saw in secondary school when I was coming up. The performances were just below standard. Somebody like, King Promise, Sarkodie were just performing like a CEO, people have paid GHS 400.00 to come and watch you and you’re performing like a worm removed from a refrigerator. Is this the performance you want to take to the Grammy? You’re joking. Somebody like KiDi, one of my favourite Highlife artist, has disappointed me. Why should you come and mime? You should tell the organizers you’re not a miming artiste but you came there and played CD for us. If you go to secondary school, that’s what they do”

Blakk Rasta, however, commended songstress Efya, Samini and Medikal for putting up an outstanding and energetic performance on the night.

He urged Ghanaian artistes to be more proactive and work on their craft while on stage.

Shatta Wale wasn’t going on stage to congratulate Stonebwoy – Blakk Rasta

Ghanaian reggae musician and a radio presenter Blakk Rasta has opined that, Shatta Wale had a different motive going on stage and not to congratulate Stonebwoy.

He told host DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa that, Shatta Wale promised to cause commotion at the 20th VGMA if things do not go his way and that is exactly what he did.
“Well, for me, from where I sat and what I saw on TV, there was nothing like he was going to congratulate anybody, Call a spade a spade. Before they play the nominees video, look at how he face was. You know, he promised that, if things do not go they way he wants, he will repeat what he did in 2013 and that’s exactly what he did. I don’t think he was going there to fight no, he was going there to create a scene and Stonebwoy to brandished a gun on stage because he sensed danger”

Blakk Rasta suggested that Charter House should ban the two Artistes for two years for bringing disgrace to the scheme and also serve as a deterrent to other Artistes.

At the 20th anniversary of VGMA, a brawl erupted between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale camps on stage after Stonebwoy was announced the winner of ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the Year’, at the VGMA on Sunday which caused the former to pull out a gun.
