According to a note from the National Police, the unusual situation occurred in the Luz ward , in Lobito, when the detained pastors, taking advantage of the pain of a bereaved family, managed to subdue and forced three brothers to keep at home the corpse of their sister, 28-year, with the promise of bringing her back to life with prayers.

The case, which  shocked the society  was discovered only last Sunday, almost a week after the young woman's death at the General Hospital in Benguela, a victim of illness, a situation not yet communicated to other relatives, because of the promise of the resuscitation to be defeated in seven days.

On the other hand, the pastors demanded from the three brothers the payment of over 350.000 kwanzas as sacrificial offer, which led the family to sell the home appliances to get the value in the vain hope of seeing their dead beloved resurrected.
