I installed bare-bone FreeBSD, and added a new user. And added sudo package with command pkg_add -r sudo. When I logged into the box with new user account, it cannot run sudo command. What procedure is required to do this?.

Adjust your sudo configuration (sample.sudoers) using visudo.

Perhaps you what something like this.

username    ALL=(ALL) ALL

In Linux you should add it to sudoers group. It should be similar in FreeBSD case
