Ignatius Asabor was born in Delta State but resides in Benin City, Edo State. He started exploring his innate tech abilities as early as 8 years old. He improvised using scraps and waste materials to build his creations such as cars, drones, and other auto works.
As predictable as most Nigerian parents will be, Ignatius was always chided by his parents for wasting his time creating instead of reading his books. His mum in particular wanted him to become a lawyer. This was not his dream but that of whom brought him to earth. Destroying his creations was usually the punishment he was given when he erred but these actions didn’t deter him. Rather, he was determined.
Since his parents couldn’t stop him, they enrolled him into Utagba-Ogbe Technical College, Kwale, Delta State to improve his skills but Ignatius was already so far gone as he taught the wards in the school better and always topped his class.
Heartbeat360 Media took a trip to his workshop at Oluku, Benin City, Edo state where he creates his inventions. The workshop doubles as a gallery for his inventions. We found different types of drones but the one he is particular about is “The Crop Duster”. An agricultural drone that can be used for fertilizer spraying and more.
His current highest qualification is a NABTEB diploma but his skills have earned him a Six Month job in Finland and is currently working on his work permit.
