Two fishermen identified as Antonio Sabino and Osorio Pires from Neves in the Sao Tome 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 Portuguese-speaking fishermen were said to have been rescued by a trawler fishing around the Gulf of Guinea and handed them over to some fishermen from Okpoama-Brass who ferried them ashore.

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

The chairman of the Okpoama Kingdom Security Committee, Munalayefa William-Sinte said the fishermen looked malnourished but they were fed and clothed before handover to the police.
