The netizen who allegedly tweeted death threats to Angel Locsin, Coco Martin, and Kim Chiu, has surrendered to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in Southeastern Mindanao today, May 22.
According to a tweet by ABS-CBN News made earlier today, 25-year-old diver Nhiel Jhon Abellanosa personally went to NBI in Samal, Davao del Norte to surrender himself following Angel’s Instagram post last May 20. However, Nhiel denied that he was the one who tweeted about the P200 million bounty being offered to anyone who would kill the Kapamilya artists.

Nhiel also surrendered his cellphone to the police for further investigation.
Yesterday, May 21, NBI responded to Angel’s post, writing:
"If Angel Locsin and other artists receive threats of physical harm or other means sent thru the social media and they feel these threats are serious, they have all the right to seek the assistance of the NBI so their concerns can be appropriately addressed," they said.
Meanwhile, Angel replied in a separate tweet that she doesn't have plans to file a formal complaint against these trolls, and would rather "pray" for them.
"For now, ipag-pray ko muna 'tong mga taong 'to. Ayoko silang pahirapan pa sa hirap ng buhay ngayon sa kung anong pwede kong ikaso sa kanila. 'Pag umulit, hindi ko sila aatrasan," she pressed.
