Reprieve For Ruth Matete As Postmortem Results Reveal Cause Of Husband’s Death



It has been hectic weeks for gospel singer Ruth Matete who has been forced to fight two battles; that of losing a husband and that of fighting allegations labeled against her of having hand in his death.

The singer who has been grilled and recorded several statements with the DCI looking into the death of her husband could finally be breathing at last.

Postmortem done on John Apewoje showed that he died of multiple organ failures as a result of the 60% burn that he had suffered.Chiefgovernment pathologist Johansen Oduor conducted their exercise.

Accusing fingers had been pointed at Ruth following a video recording of a Nigerian national claiming to be the manager to the late. In his wild accusations, he said Ruth had a record of violence towards her husband and that a possibility of her hand in death shouldn’t be ruled out.

Nigerian embassy immediately ordered for the body not to be released until a postmortem and in-depth investigation into the death is done and determined. Reports however indicate that, his burial is yet to be confirmed as embassy instructed the state to wait for a go ahead.
