Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — The Ateneo de Manila University's (AdMU) Loyola Heights campus in Quezon City was declared safe after a bomb threat forced the school to implement emergency lockdown on Monday (March 28).

On the school's official Facebook page, AdMU said the police completed its second sweep on Monday afternoon and declared the campus safe.

Chief Inspector Mario Manahan of the Quezon City Police District confirmed earlier they received a call of a bomb threat inside the campus.

The official Facebook page of ADMU said it received the bomb threat at 8:30 a.m. Monday. Its security office immediately requested the Explosive Ordnance Disposal and QCPD Station 9 bomb squad to send units to sweep the campus grounds and buildings.

AdMU's official student publication, The Guidon, reported the campus is on an emergency lockdown following the threat.

Bomb squad, K9 units, and fire trucks were seen inside the campus.

Loyola Schools Vice President John Paul Vergara said classes and work are officially suspended for the rest of the day to implement evacuation procedures.

Classes and work will resume on Tuesday (March 29).
