Snakes force Liberian president George Weah to abandon his office

There was a moment of scare and panic at Liberian president George Weah's office on Wednesday, April 17, after two huge black snakes were found at his place of work.

The head of state has now been forced to vacate the office and work from home as other staff members stay away from the building to allow for fumigation.

In a report by BBC, Press Secretary Smith Toby said the crawling animals were found in the Foreign Affairs Ministry building, where the president's office is located.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosts the office of the president, so it did an internal memo asking the staff to stay home while they do the fumigation," he said.

However, the creepy animals were never killed as they went back to their nests.

"The snakes were never killed...There was a little hole somewhere [through which] they made their way back," said Toby.

Tobby attributed the snake menace to lack of proper maintenance to the building that was built several years ago.

Following the incident, security has been heightened at the president's residence with a fleet of escort vehicles parked outside his house in Monrovia, the capital city.
