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

Police and presidential security were seen guarding Mr. Weah’s residence in the capital Monrovia. A fleet of vehicles including escorts jeeps were parked outside.

Mr. Toby said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs started to fumigate on Friday.
