POLICE have determined that a bomb threat at the Ateneo de Manila University on Monday was a hoax, official said.
An employee received a text message from an anonymous sender around 8:30 a.m. warning them of a possible bomb explosion inside the university, said Quezon City Police District (QCPD) director Edgardo Tinio.
The employee immediately alerted the school authorities while the students and employees were ordered to vacate the campus.
Tinio said explosive and ordnance unit found nothing in the campus.
"I was there personally and sa assessment ko hoax iyon," he said.
The university's administration, through its official Facebook page, said strict security measures are being implemented inside the campus as of 1:52 p.m. but employees and students were already allowed to retrieve their belongings.
Classes and work will resume on Tuesday, it added. (Sunnex)
