According to reports, Ivo Macaia was taken by military police to the village of Prata where he was held for five days in a hole. It was raining heavily and the water came up to his neck. Military police, apparently suspecting him of being a civilian representative of one of the armed factions of the Frente para a Libertação do Enclave de Cabinda (FLEC), Cabinda Enclave Liberation Front, had interrogated him about FLEC's military locations.
