A young Nigerian man, @ebencobuilding1, has shared a video showing the alternative way a house's parapet can be constructed.
Filming his team working on a building project, the creative man showed people how they used rods to cast out the parapet.

Another man shows his parapet building method
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young man, @goslam1, went online to share a video of a house whose parapet was constructed with aluminium instead of casting.
In the TikTok clip, the man filmed some people working as he told TikTokers not to waste their money doing the normal parapet.
A lot of people in his comment section did not agree with him. They said that parapets are to provide security against entrance through the roof.
