Sao Tome Fishermen Lost In Atlantic Ocean Rescued In Bayelsa

 



Two fishermen identified as Antonio Sabino and Osorio Pires from Neves in the SaôTomē and Principe were on Sunday rescued in Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, Southern Nigeria, five days after they got lost in the Atlantic Ocean.


The distressed fishermen were said to have been rescued by a fishing trawler in the Gulf of Guinea and handed over to fishermen from Okpoama on the Atlantic coast of Brass who took them ashore.


The Sao Tomeans were thereafter taken to the Okpoama Divisional Police Headquarters and received by the officer in charge, Ebimiesigha Bebetu, a Chief Superintendent of Police.


Chairman of the Okpoama Kingdom Security Committee, Munalayefa William-Sinte, said the malnourished and frail-looking men were clothed and fed before they were handed over to the police for necessary action.


Spokesman of the state police command, Asinim Bustwat, confirmed the development.


He identified the two fishermen as Antonio Sabino (52) and Osorio Pires (41) from Neves in SaôTomē and Principe.


“The Police authorities have established contact with a coast guard officer from Saô Tomē and Principe and are making concerted effort to reunite them with their families,” he said.
