The condolence message, which was contained in the statement issued on Thursday and signed by Kaduna State secretary of the forum, John Haruna, stated that Dr. Adamu died of motor accident.
The statement stressed that, “I wish to express and send our deepest, Sincere Condolences to the entire family of Late Dr Silas Adamu on his passing unto glory on Monday 8/3/2021, after a ghastly motor accident that also claimed the lives of his beloved Wife and Daughter.
“The news of their death came to us as rude shock. Dr Silas was a complete gentle man, always dedicated to his assigned duties at all times. He was committed and strong member of the Forum. We will surely miss him.
“Dr Silas Adamu, who was the President of Atyap Community Development Associations (ACDA), was a distinguished man of virtue and honour among his colleagues. His death is a deadly blow to the entire Middle-Belt Forum’s Family, SOKAPU and Atyap Chiefdom.
“God Almighty will comfort the family they left behind and give them the strength they need at this moment,” it stated.
Forum also noted that, “Death is the last chapter of time but the first chapter of eternity. Our condolences also go to the President of SOKAPU, Hon Jonathan Asake, and his team; The Agwatyap, His Highness, Dominic Gambo Yahaya, over this tragic loss of these great men and women.
“We pray that God, who created man and woman and equally brought this to us, will console and comfort you all.
“The Bible says, ‘Stay not in grief that he is no more, but in thankfulness that he was. The remembrance of the righteous is a blessing (Proverbs 10:7).’ To God of all flesh be all the glory,” it stated.
The forum also condoles with the family on behalf of all members of the Board of Trustees, National Executive Council (NEC) of the Middle-Belt.
