At least 17 people have been reported dead at a nightclub in the Enyobeni Tavern in Scenery Park, on the edge of East London, Eastern Cape province South Africa.

According to details, young adults aged between 18 and 20 were among the dead said Eastern Cape police spokesperson Brigadier Tembinkosi Kinana.

“The SAPS confirms that about 17… were found dead inside a local cabin in Scenery Park, in the area of East London,” he said.

He added that they received this report in the early hours of Sunday. The circumstances surrounding the incident are under investigation as they speak.

The police does not want to make any speculations at this stage. Their investigation is continuing.

He later confirmed to Reuters that “the circumstances under which they died are under investigation”, adding it was too early to determine the causes of death.

Reporters at the Daily Dispatch, which said the death toll could be as high as 22, say there is speculation those who died were exposed to some kind of poison or died during a stampede.
