Ruth Matete has reportedly gone broke after the Nigerian Government detained her husband’s body on the behest of his family.

On Sunday, April 23, asked the Directorate of Criminal Investigation to ensure Beloved John Apewajoye’s body was held until it gives consent for burial.

His family, later on, allowed the gospel singer to bury Apewajoye, but new twists have surfaced as the Nigerian High Commission clung on to the body, piling more misery on Matete as her lawyer disclosed that she did not have any money to continue paying for morgue expenses.

In a report by The Standard on Friday, May 15, Matete’s lawyer, Robert Odanga lamented over how the gospel artist was being frustrated by the Nigerian High Commission’s directive.

“She is holding a fundraiser for two hospital bills already. The family in Nigeria has written a letter to the Nigerian High Commission to release the body. We have also written two letters to high commission, but they have remained mute.

“Ruth is prepared to release it, but she cannot continue paying the accruing morgue bills,” Odanga of Odanga and Partners Advocates disclosed.
