Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh, has made a return to Instagram five months after his wife, Bettie Jennifer, was shot dead in the United States.

In his first post in five months on Instagram late Wednesday, Chris suggested that he had recovered from the shock he suffered after his wife’s murder.


He quoted a portion of the scriptures, saying that it is “easier to stay open and trust God.”

“Acts 16: 23 -30 We learn a lot from our places of discomfort, the only way for a baby to come out of the womb is through it. I guess in life, you cannot protect yourself from sadness, without protecting yourself from happiness. It’s easier to stay open and trust God,” he wrote.

Chris’s wife was walking to her car when a man armed with a handgun approached her before shooting her in the head.

The shooting took place on May 10 in the parking lot of a Maryland office building.

Chris Attoh had tied the knot with Bettie Jenifer in October 2018 after breaking up with his Nigerian wife, DamiloIa Adegbite.


Greenbelt Police Department revealed that Bettie was not legally divorced before she married Chris.

According to the police, Bettie hadn’t legally ended her union 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.

Law enforcement authorities believe the shooting was targeted.
