During an interview with BBC News Pidgin, the talented young boy narrated how he managed to build an excavator using syringe, wood and drip set. Besides building an excavator, he also built a functional tipper truck.
Emmanuel revealed that he spent a period of about one year to make the excavator work. He added that he uses an old laptop battery to supply power for the tipper. This he says is to enable it discharge the load.
The talented boy is seen in a video clip demonstrating how the excavator functions.
He said he surprises people on the street whenever they see him operating the excavator.
‘Some people give me money which I use to buy materials to help me build more equipments. I want to build more equipments such as a payloader and a helicopter which can be flown with wireless remote,’ he added.

Newslex Point previously reported a 24-year old physics student from Nigeria who built a working helicopter out of old car and bike parts. Mubarak Muhammed Abdullahi spent eight months building the model, using the money he makes from repairing cellphones and computers.
While some of the parts have been sourced from a crashed 747, the chopper contains parts from cars and bikes. The 12-meter-long aircraft has never flown above a height of seven feet. It is powered by a secondhand 133 horsepower engine from a Honda Civic.
