Creative! Brilliant Nigerian Undergraduate Constructs a Motorcycle Using Palm Fronds and Fibre (Photos)

Nigerians may soon have a local option for Okada.

An engineering student of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) is currently making waves online after constructing a motorcycle using palm fronds and fibre.

A Facebook user identified as Ezeifedi Ugonna Julius, took to the social networking platform to post some photos while revealing how the student of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) created a motorcycle from palm fronds and fibre.
He shared the photos and wrote; “UNN Student Creates A Motorcycle From Palm Fronds And Fibre. This stuff is definitely an engineering – fine art collaboration lol, the guy tried abeg.”
Another Facebook user who saw when the finished product was been displayed, admitted that it was a great piece of art, and disclosed that he thought it was an awkward load someone was carrying on a wheelbarrow till he gave it a closer look.
He wrote; “I was at school today, UNN to be precise, and I happened to witness an unusual sight some 40 metres away from where I stood. At first I thought it was an awkward load that was on the wheelbarrow but on a closer view I noticed it was actually a Motorcycle made from Palm fronds and fibre, it even had some wiring on it.

“I stood transfixed, I couldn’t ask the inventor some questions because I was running late for class, but I overheard him say he’s an engineering student. This stuff is definitely an engineering fine art collaboration lol, the guy tried abeg.”
