Bomb threat hits AdDU

THE ATENEO de Davao University (AdDU) yesterday suspended the afternoon and evening classes in its Jacinto campus after receiving a bomb threat.

 Fr. Joel Tabora, president of the university, said in his official Twitter account that they immediately decided to call off “for the rest of the day” as way of ensuring the safety of the students, faculty and the rest of the workers in the campus.

 “Stay away until all is checked,” Tabora said, as he urged the students, faculty and the rest of the workers to keep safe.

 The bomb squad of the Task Force Davao immediately went and checked in the area. The inspection turned out to be negative.

 Jeremy Eliab, executive vice president of AdDU, said it was a scare tactic. “Information was received via text and call noontime,” he said.

 The campus, he said, was cleared by 2:30 pm. The Jacinto campus houses the senior high school, college and graduate school of the university.

 “After news of a bomb threat spread across the Jacinto campus, necessary measures were taken, including the evacuation of all students from university premises,” Atenews, the official of student publication of AdDU, said in its official Facebook page. KMF
