Narrating his story, Kofi B's father disclosed that he had initially sojourned to Cote d'Ivoire to find his brother but he settled there after finding a job.
Life had not been easy and he recently decided to come back home but on his journey, thieves robbed him of his belongings and he had to sleep at a lorry station in one of the border towns.
A woman who heard his plight agreed to help him by paying for his transport fare from Cote d'Ivoire.
According to him, he last visited Agogo in 1989. While hi exact age is not known, he should be in his mid-70s. He has a younger sister who is 70 years old.
Other members of the family who spoke in the video were of the conviction that it was Kofi B's 'ghost' which had got his father to return home.
