Faced with the risk posed by the toxicity of the explosive, and the probability that there would be more homemade devices, the university determined the suspension of work until the review by the authorities of the Ministry of National Defense and Civil Protection is completed, for which the students, teachers and administrative staff who were evacuated from the area will not be able to return for their personal belongings.
