Young Man, 25, kills father over fight with mum

Mfreke Archibong Effiong, A young man, was yesterday paraded by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command for allegedly killing his father, Mr. Archibong Effiong in Ibesikpo-Asutan LGA of the state.

While parading the 25 years old, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Delia Nwawe, said the suspect hit his father with a big stick on the head.

The suspect attributed the incident to provocation as he never set out to kill his father.


Mfreke said he came back from farm on Monday to meet his father beating the mother.

He said the mother was trying to explain what happened, but his father attacked him with a broken bottle. He said he was trying to defend himself when he hit his father with the stick on his right arm.



  1. Poor poor young man. I pray the law will look into the matter. Obviously a young man’s love for his mother and the obvious incessant beating of his mother triggered the scene that led to the death of his hot tempered father. A classic case of manslaughter. The law should be merciful.

  2. What is an amazing thing on this type of attack on ones father by a male child is that they do not know that apart from the Bible forbidding and saying that “thou shalt not kill”, when they grow up their children will do the same or worse thing to them. Very many women instil in the minds of their children hatred for their father. Many children who abuse, beat, stone or kill their fathers do so for what their mothers instil in them. Many mothers go to the extent of using super natural powers for their children to hate their fathers. Whether it is madness support for the mum or provocation the young man must also die.

  3. Naija for show , so if this gentle man had use gun to kill his father , I’m sure our police would allow him to carry the gun around just to show the weapon for the rest of the world right?
    I’m just really sorry for this man, cos our government will treat him as a criminal , but in real world he’s a hero for saving his mums and also acted as self defence .

  4. May God show him mercy bcos he did it to save the mother at the same time the father is useless for beating a woman that has borne him grown up
