After designing one of the most fascinating overhead bridges with materials he sourced locally, a 13-year-old Nigerian boy wonder has attracted the attention of people on the Internet and a scholarship worth 5 million naira.
The 13-year-old boy, Musa Sani Kano, caught the attention of the Borno State Governor of Nigeria, Professor Babagana Zulum, who rewarded his brilliance with a scholarship worth 5 million Naira.
