The remains of Late Mr. Joseph Believe Obah was laid to rest recently at his country home in Egbo, Igbide, Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State.

Late Mr. Joseph Believe Obah was born on 15th March, 1950 into the family of Maskoli Obah in Igbide, Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State.

Mr Joseph Believe Obah started his primary school in Igbide. He attended Local Authority School in Igbide from 1963 to 1968. Due to some reasons he could not attend his secondary school, but later attended Adult Secondary School where he got his National Examination Council (NECO) Certificate in  2004.

Mr. Joseph Obah was into farming with his parents. He later relocated to Oleh in 1971. He was into private business for many years and also worked with some oil exploration companies at a point in his business life. In August 2002, he joined Roger Security (A Division of Roger Fred International LTD), in Delta State University, Oleh Campus until his death.

Mr. Joseph Obah was a member of the Africa Traditional Church in his early years. He later met with Jehovah Witnesses and studied the bible with them. He accepted the truth of God’s word, dedicated his life and got baptized as one of Jehovah Witnesses in 1969 at Emevor.

He served Jehovah for 51 years, until his death. He was a zealous kingdom proclaimer. He believes in the resurrection hope and shares his bible beliefs with others. He believes that the kingdom of God will bring a permanent solution to all mankind’s problems.

Mr. Joseph Obah got married in August 1978 to Victoria Oghenereke. He was a loving and caring husband and father. He was also cheerful, friendly, hospitable, energetic and easy to get along with.

He was very resourceful and generous, always eager to give helping hands to everyone with whom he came in contact with. He was indeed a father of all. Though imperfect, he gathered several friends effortlessly because of his kind, cheerful and loving disposition.

Their marriage was blessed with seven(7) children. He was so concerned in raising his children in the mental regulation of Jehovah. This was his primary duty. He was fondly called Brother J. B Obah by friends in the Christian Congregation. He will be greatly missed more than words can express.
