Sr. Supt. Ronald dela Rosa said that at about 5 a.m., two second year high school students of Bangoy National High School found a piece of paper on the school grounds with the words: "Babala!!! May anim na bombang nakatanim sa paaralan niyo pag hindi niyo ito makita matapos ang 930 am magpaalam na kayo eq estudyante niyo!!! - laban pilipinas."
