EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: How Semi-Literate Man Built Helicopter From Scratch

When Naij.com investigated how a semi-literate man could build a helicopter in far away Oyo state on Monday, December 14, the things found there proved that this was possible.

The advent of Science and Technology have made life easier to live. Man can now fly in the air like bird and move in the sea like water animals.

A man named Paul Onah who is a semi-literate showed that lack of formal education up to University is not a barrier to achieving his dream of building a helicopter. He is the first man in Nigeria presently to build a helicopter.

He constructed a 4-passenger helicopter after making different prototypes from wood materials. Below are exclusive photos only from Naij.com on Mr Onah’s invention:
