HOAX: Circulating text message with warning of suicide bombings in Metro Manila malls

SHARE:

It is confirmed by the Department of National Defense that the warning is not true.

A text message is recently being circulated in Metro Manila and and in Region 4-A, alerting people to "stay clear off malls in Metro Manila for the time being" because suicide bombings are being planned by four women from Basilan.

The text message also claims that it was confirmed by the daughter of Philippine National Police Chief Ronald dela Rosa herself.


A man named Stevie of Fil Chi Bike Riders was the source of the text message and it was written exactly as:

"Forwarded from another viber grp. Better be safe than sorry. This was confirmed by Gen. Bato's daughter (my officemate from Alveo).

Hello everyone in Manila please stay clear off malls for the time being. We received intelligence of 4 women from Basilan plotting to do suicide bombings in malls in Manila. All malls are on high alert. Thank you."

According to an article published by Manila Bulletin, the Department of National Defense claimed that the warning was a hoax.

Similar text messages which are circulating for a while now have also been proven to be hoaxes as per DND spokesperson Director Arsenio Andolong.

"Nevertheless, we take all of them seriously and we will certainly look into this one. At the moment, however, we have not received such intelligence report of the planned attacks," he said.

"As far as we are concerned, business as usual," he added as he emphasized that people should not be worried.
