A 15-year-old teenager who was identified as Ikechukwu Divine Oramife, has built many toy vehicles with local wastes like condemned DVD players.
Ikechukwu, showing off his works, revealed that it took him more than a month in making a replica of the Lamborghini 2021, stating also that he will love to go to school and become an automobile engineer so he can improve his craft.
In a video interview with BBC News Pidgin, the boy showcased the toy cars he has made so far with local materials, adding that he wishes to improve his skill.
According to the boy, he has been in the craft since when he was 11 years old, adding that he has built things like a helicopter, aeroplane, and a tricycle (keke) among others.
He stated things like aluminum, dunlop, super glue and copper wire are some of his materials. To make the tyres, he glued pieces of dunlop to achieve that.
When asked how he built it, he said that the electric motor in the car is from a scrapped DVD player. He added that he spent one month and two weeks building the Lambo while the excavator was built in a month and two days.
According to the teenager, out of his creations, the Lambo was the hardest because it included the function of the seat coming out and going back in before the door closes.
He had to work five times on the door before it worked. Unlike other things he created, he built a special pad that acts like a remote control for the toy.
