“For safety precautions, UST Angelicum College will be suspending classes today, March 6, 2020 due to a reported bomb threat. Please fetch your children as soon as possible at the Santo Domingo Church. For your information,” the statement on its official social media accounts read.

According to a police report from the La Loma Police Station, Maria Urduja Galang, the school principal, reported the bomb threat at about 8:30 a.m. after noticing comments on the Facebook page of UST Angelicum College under the name “Renegades Gary,” stating “Bombs planted around the campus. Be safe. It will be triggered anytime.”

Police officers arrived at about 9:00 a.m. to inspect the area. The area was declared cleared and no suspicious objects were found within the area.

At about 1:30 p.m., the college confirmed on its Facebook page that the campus was declared “safe and clear” by the explosives ordnance disposal unit of the Quezon City bomb squad, and that classes would resume the next day.

“Parents, guardians, or learners can also get their things from their classroom starting tomorrow. Kindly coordinate with the guards on duty,” UST-Angelicum’s advisory added.
