Bomb scare hits UP Diliman campus
MANILA, Philippines–Police found no explosive inside the University of the Philippines College of Business Administration (UP-CBA) building in Diliman, Quezon City after it was hit by a bomb threat on Monday morning.
Police Inspector Noel Sublay, Quezon City Police District (QCPD) explosives ordnance division head, told INQUIRER.net in a phone interview that the threat turned out negative after police searched the building for bombs.
Sublay said the college’s student council chairman received an anonymous text message threatening to bomb the building.
The student then relayed the bomb threat to the school administration, who in turn sought the QCPD’s assistance.
The threat, however, did not disrupt classes in the UP-CBA.
Police said no classes were interrupted as the college scheduled its midterms examination at 11 a.m.
