A young man is in trouble for murdering his mother while quarrelling with his mother.
It was gathered that Mfreke who did not like the fact that his father had a quarrel with his mother, picked up a plank and hit his father on the head, leading to his death.
According to the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Cordelia Nwawe, the suspect who was arrested shortly after he committed the act, has 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,” Nwawe said.
The now sober Mfreke, said he had just come back from the farm when he met his parents quarrelling and got to know that his father was the cause and that when his father knew he was around, he came out from the room and threw a bottle at him and collected the plank with which he used to hit him.
“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.”
