A middle-aged man, Mr. Okon Samson Udofia, has appealed to the Akwa Ibom State Government and individuals to help him.
He alleged that his son has burnt down his house.
Udofia, an oil palm tree tapper and an indigene of Ikot Nya village in Nsit Ibom Local Government, said he is homeless and in need of a roof over his head.
Narrating his ordeal said his 20-year-old son, who is suspected to be mentally-deranged, torched his house at about 9pm on Wednesday when he was asleep.
He said the community had appealed to the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) to arrest Iniobong, but he kept saying it was not the responsibility of the police to arrest mentally-deranged people.
