It is another landmark in the technological scene has an indigenous Igbo man set to be the first to construct the flying camera in the region.



The 25 years old boy named Agbo Samson Emeka, an indigene of Orba Town in Udenu Local Government Area, Nsukka Zone in Enugu State, is the first Igbo indigene to construct a functional drone from scratch.

Emeka sat for the West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in 2015, but could not further his education because of funds as his aged father is down with stroke.

Speaking to newsmen on his inspiration, the young genius said;

“From childhood, I’ve been doing some minor construction. After secondary, I had some issues. Then I was already trying to figure out how objects could fly.”

Years after, he ventured into a small-scale business in his hometown to fund the construction of the first drone.

This first drone attracted a media house who granted him an interview. This rare invention came to the notice of the Enugu state governor, His Excellency, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who invited Emeka to the state government house.
