Education Minister Anthony Garcia has stated that a bomb threat made by an unknown male has been reported to police authorities.
He said the matter was reported to the relevant authorities for further investigation and there would be school as usual.
The recording states:
“The word is that Isis has planned to blow up the schools so please keep your sons and your daughters and your nephews and your grandchildren away from the schools please. This is not no joke, this is not no kicks.”
Garcia stated that there will be no disruption to the CXC exams.
Over the weekend, he urged parents and students to ignore that message, as he says it was somebody with a deranged mind who is trying to instill fear in the minds of our population. It is something we totally reject.
He said he was confident that all security measures are in place so that in the event there is any truth to these rumors.
He disclosed that they will be prepared and said that citizens had nothing to fear .
