About 7,000 delegates were in attendance at the convention when the attack took place last week Friday, August 25, 2017, the reports said.

Police and firemen were invited and promptly intervened, sending “four ambulances and three policemen who joined the faithful by evacuating patients in private vehicles to the nearest sanitary units, such as the municipal hospital of and the hospital of The Cajueiros,” one of the reports said.

It added that “the toxic product that triggered the situation has been spread by a group presumably consisting of seven older individuals, three of whom are already in police custody.”

According to the report, “One of the defendants was arrested in one of the bathrooms changing clothes, the other while trying to enter one of the ladies’ bathrooms with the same purpose and the third to transpose the door.”

It disclosed that samples of the toxic substance are already in possession of the experts of the provincial research service Criminal of Luanda and Central Crime Lab.

There were no deaths as a result of the attack.  Panda Dombaixi, Clinical Director of the municipal hospital, which treated 45 victims, said: “Clinically there were no worrying cases because some patients recovered as they talked to the service medical team. Some even only with natural oxygen exposure.”
