According to reports, Joshua, who is a father of two and had a ministry in Taraba where he provided medicine and clothing for hundreds of poor people in his community, was returning to his mission station in Bantaje, a village near Jalingo, from an evangelistic outreach to some villagers when his vehicle broke down along the Wukari-Jalingo road.

Pastor Adah, a graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, decided to live in Taraba after he was posted there in 2002 upon finishing his university. He met his wife there and also saw what children of the poor were going through in the community and decided to stay behind and help improve their lives. He left city life and moved to a remote village with his family, where he built a school in a round hut that provided free education to a student population that grew to more than 400 pupils. He also provided shelter, food and money to improvised families and this is how they take his life.

He’s survived by a wife and two young children. May his soul rest in peace, amen.
