In a short documentary on Joshua's life by Joy News, it is indicated that he stays at New Achimota and has been in this condition for the past three years.

Joshua suffered the accident on the Legon-Madina highway which left him with a serious spinal cord injury that makes it impossible for him to walk any longer.

It is reported that Joshua was initially taken to the hospital but the bills quickly overwhelmed his family and they have now left him in the basement of a house to survive on his own.

A charity organization that has been supplying Joshua with food and water indicated that the doctor says it will take 80,000 Euros to solve Joshua's spinal problem completely.
