Meet the 25-year-old engineer who manufactured Nigeria’s first ‘carbon fibre’ sports car

Published

on

Jerry Mallo, a 25-year-old fabrication engineer and chief executive officer (CEO) of Bennie Technologies LTD, has manufactured Nigeria’s first ‘carbon fibre’ sports car called ‘Bennie Purrie’.

The car was launched on Thursday at the Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.

Speaking during the event, the Plateau-born engineer disclosed that the sports car is the first of many more innovative products he will be manufacturing.

He also appeared on ‘Driving Local Innovation,’ a segment on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Friday, where he explained that the love for luxury vehicles in Nigeria and Africa informed his drive to manufacture such car.

“In Europe, we learnt that making the car is just half of the challenge, and selling it is the other half; Africa is usually is the target place to sell these vehicles, so I feel there’s a big market for it here,” he said.

He added that the availability of the resources for fabricating the car also facilitated such innovation.

Giving the specifications of the car, he said fibre was used in producing the Bennie Purrie so as to enable it withstand shocks in case of an accident.

He added that lack of shock absorbers in aluminium made ones often account for deaths of people whenever a crash occurs.

The car has since been drawing commendations from several quarters, with many using it as a reference to push for made in Nigeria products.

The Plateau state government, who sponsored the unveiling of the innovation at Abuja, also took to his social media handle to commend Mallo, with a picture of Governor Simon Lalong posing inside the car.

“Plateau ingenuity and innovation on the rise as Governor Lalong’s support for young entrepreneurs yield more results. Gov. Lalong unveiled the BENNIE PURRIE, a sports car manufactured by Jerry Mallo of Bennie Agro & Automobile Technology Ltd,” it wrote.

Mallo, however, disclosed that those willing to purchase the sports car will have to wait for two more years when the fabricator will be ready to create one fit for public use.

Bill which recognizes males as rape victims passes second reading

Published

on

A bill which seeks to remove gender restrictions on rape offences and also proposes stiffer penalties for kidnapping has passed its second reading on the floor of the Nigerian senate. 

The bill which recognizes males as rape victims and also seeks to remove the statute of limitation in cases of defilement was sponsored by senator representing Lagos central Oluremi Tinubu. 

Oluremi Tinubu in her lead debate said section 218 of the criminal code constitutes a limitation to the prosecution of an offender as it only allows for only two months after the offence is committed.

“This is untenable in a country where investigations often take longer than two months”, Tinubu said.

“Considering the shortage of police personnel, relative to our population as prescribed by international standards, the two months limitation is unlikely to be met at all.

“With the development and innovation in forensic technology and the accessibility or otherwise of such infrastructure in Nigeria, rushed investigations with a view to commencing prosecutions within a two month period leave a possibility of a huge margin for error.”

The bill also seeks an amendment to section 221 of the criminal code which provides that “where a person has or attempts carnal knowledge of a girl being of or above the age of thirteen and under the age sixteen, an ‘idiot or imbecile’, he shall be liable to imprisonment for a period of two years provided that the prosecution is commenced within two months after the offence is committed.”

The Lagos Senator stated that “there are incidents of non-consensual sex perpetrated against the male gender” and further described the criminal code act which defines rape as an offence against women as “grievous”. She said it promotes the socio-cultural belief that men do not need to consent to sexual acts.
