20-year-old Igbo Boy Built An Aeroplane In His Village, Says He Was Taught In His Dreams

A 20-year-old old boy from Mbano in Imo State has stirred mixed reactions after he built an airplane, bike, and cars with local materials in his village.

In an interview with BBC Pidgin, the 20-year-old boy identified as Akubundu Kenneth revealed that he was taught in his dreams. Kenneth explained that he did not get his ideas from books or videos before he could build those things, they were all revealed to him in his dream and he put them into real practicals once he woke up.

While speaking with BBC Pidgin, the young lad said that it took him four years to build his first airplane due to the issues he had with the control, he added that his first plane crashed during an examination. Kenneth has built other things among which are a scooter bike, an F1 type of car, and an airplane.

Kenneth told BBC Pidgin that his only desire is to travel abroad where he could meet top engineers that will teach him how to build more things.

I think that what this young boy need is empowerment and strong support. If he could assemble those items without being a graduate, I believe that he will go far in life if he is allowed to explore more things and advance his knowledge.
