Matete’s husband death

Pastor John died after he reportedly lit a gas cylinder he had been trying to fix because they realized they had been sold a faulty gas tank.

Upon his igniting a match, the gas he had released from the tank in his efforts to fix it evaporated into the atmosphere in the kitchen and it flamed up, engulfing him in flames.

In her February 2023 statement, Pastor Matete said she was two months pregnant when her new husband died and her emotional state was destroyed when she was accused of killing him.

“Losing someone you deeply love is not something you heal from overnight. Especially when that person is your spouse.  With the busy lifestyle we have these days, it can get so busy that you forget to heal or assume you have healed when in essence, you’re just too busy to examine your emotional state. Today, I take time to examine Ruth Matete, the young lady who was so hurt and accused of killing her husband a few years ago. The young widow who was 2 months pregnant when her husband died. The young widow who had to go through the pregnancy journey while she mourned her new husband of four months,” stated Pastor Matete.

The two had just started their marital journey before the untimely death of John Olakanmi Apewajoye.
