He demonstrated how it works as new naira notes dashed out of a hole to the floor. On one hand, he held what looks like the battery that powered the machine.

His creation became known months after another Nigerian kid did something similar but with a different body design that mimics the real ATM.

Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that a 14-year-old Nigerian boy, Praise Kelechi, showed off his improvisational skill of using cartons to create robots and other superhero costumes.

In an interview with BBC, the boy, while, displaying the Iron Man suit replica he made, said he was working on it before the lockdown but had more time to perfect it as school was on a forced holiday.

He gave this piece of advice:

“I want to tell the world that no matter how rich or poor you may be, you can still be whatever you want to be and do whatever you want. It does not matter the resources available or not, you can just be who you are.”
