By : GNA

Three Angolan fishermen who were rescued at sea and brought to Ghana were on Wednesday flown back home.

Briefing journalists at the Airport in Accra, officials from the Angolan Embassy said the fishermen - Cesar Joao, Tchimba Kobwa and Estevao Antoinette - lost their bearing in Angolan waters last December and were brought to Ghana after being rescued by a Portuguese fishing vessel.

They were then handed over to the Ghana Immigration Service, who arranged and put them on an Angolan flight that was performing VVIP duties at the Kotoka International Airport.

The Angolan flight flew back home the Guinea Bissau delegation which came to celebrate Ghana's 50th anniversary.

"Their families might be thinking they are dead after being lost at sea for three months," the officials said.
