It was learnt that Archibong and his wife had a disagreement during which Mfreke picked up a plank and hit his father on the head.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Cordelia Nwawe, said on Thursday that the murder suspect had confessed to the crime.
“The young man murdered his father by using a plank to hit him on his head; the young man will be charged to court after investigation,” she said.
Mfreke confessed that when he came back from the farm; he met his parents quarrelling and got to know that his father was the cause.
He stated that when his father knew that he (Mfreke) was around, he came out from the room and threw a bottle at him and used the plank to hit him.
He said, “My mother and father have been having issues. My father has not been feeding me; I cut palm fruit to feed myself.
“On Monday, at about 6pm, I returned from where I went to and met my father and mother quarrelling.
“I asked my mother what the problem was and she told me. My father came out and saw me; he threw a bottle at me and hit me with a plank. I was annoyed and I took the same plank and hit him back; he slumped and the next thing I heard was that he was dead.”
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Murtala Mani, has inaugurated a new uniform for the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad.
He said the rebranding of FSARS was the initiative of the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, to reposition the unit for effective performance.
He added that FSARS operatives in the state had been foiling kidnapping and armed robbery.
He urged the operatives to be committed to their duty and stop criminals from having their ways in the state.
He said, “I appreciate all of you. Make sure criminals do not have any place to hide in Akwa Ibom State. Double your efforts to achieve zero tolerance for crime.”
Mani also commended five policemen from his command who received ‘Certificate of Courage’ for outstanding performance.
He urged them to see the certificates as motivation to spur them to do their best for the command in combating crimes in the state.
