A frightening incident took place at Hinawanan National High School in Loay, Bohol on the morning of Thursday, October 12, 2023. Up to 14 students were allegedly possessed by an evil spirit right in the middle of their classes, according to Staff Sergeant Donald Curan, chief investigator at the Loay Police Station.
Sergeant Curan described the terrifying scene – many of the students suddenly became aggressive and started screaming at the top of their lungs. They also displayed abnormal strength as teachers tried to restrain them. “In my assessment, it is likely they were repossessed. They are not usually so aggressive, but they were shouting loudly,” Curan commented.
After being brought to a local priest for exorcism rites and examined at the Rural Health Unit, the students finally calmed down from their hysterical state. Curan revealed that earlier, on Monday, one of the students claimed to have seen a shadowy black figure. This prompted the school to hold a mass the next day, on Tuesday.
This was the first time such an incident has occurred at Hinawanan National High School. To allow the traumatized students time to recover, the school administration made the decision to temporarily suspend classes.
