The octogenarian served as Imam of the Central Mosque for over 40 decades; the service he started since 1974 till death.
The late Imam’s last sermons were on love, peace, unity, mutual coexistence, justice, sincerity, the fear and total submission to the will and worship of one God; calling on the people to be conscious of the day of judgment and the life to follow.
The Imam called for intensive prayers against hypocrisy, conspiracy induced anarchy intended to disorder the peace loving, peace living, peacekeeping, peace bleaving and the monarchy in Jalingo-Maiha.
Imam has from Adam led the propagation that subdued schematic propaganda aimed a dissention for disintegration, by insisting that the Makkah and Madinah put together modelled Maiha must not be submitted to subjugation, the subjects must not be subjected to misrule, surrendered in sorrow to the suppression and oppression by the weakened faith.
The Imam of blessed memory has prayed fervently for the return of legitimate monarchy in Jalingo-Maiha, he is not to survive to participate in the coronation due to the rather executive undue delay in approving the appointment of the courts’ declared legitimate district head of Jalingo-Maiha.

The Ummah prayed that “may Allah SWT forgive Imam Adamu of his weakenesses. May Allah SWT accept his services; worship, devotions and supplications. May Aljannah Firdaus remain his abode. May Allah SWT bless the family he has left behind and grant them fortitude to bear the irreparable loss”.
