Two snakes force Liberian President George Weah out of office

Breaking:?Snakes force Liberian President George Weah out of office

Two black snakes have been found in Liberian President George Weah's office, forcing him to work from his private residence.

Press secretary Smith Toby told the BBC that on Wednesday two black snakes were found in the foreign affairs ministry building, his official place of work. All staff have been told to stay away until 22 April.

"It's just to make sure that crawling and creeping things get fumigated from the building. 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," Toby said.

The office of the president has been based in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs since a fire in 2006 gutted the nearby presidential mansion. A FrontPage Africa news website video shows workers trying to attack the snakes when they appeared near the building's reception.  "The snakes were never killed. There was a little hole somewhere [through which] they made their way back" Toby said.

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.  "That building's been there for years now, and [because of] the drainage system, the possibility of having things like snakes crawling in that building was high," he said.


The president is definitely returning to his office on Monday after the fumigation whether or not the snakes are found and killed, Toby added.

Eight Nigerians sentenced to death in UAE for robbery (Photo)



Sharjah Criminal Court in the United Arab Emirates has sentenced eight Nigerians to death for carrying out what it termed as “a string of armed robberies” at money exchanges and cash machines across the emirate in December 2016.

Khaleej Times, a UAE medium, reported on Thursday that the ninth suspect was however sentenced to six months imprisonment for possession of stolen money. He would be deported after serving the jail term.

The report noted that the ninth suspect denied the charge against him and claimed that one of the suspect’s brothers asked him to transfer Dh60,000 to an account in his home country (Nigeria). The court accused the convicted persons of armed robbery, public assault and seizing money by force. Some of the accused were said to have confessed to their crimes while others denied the charges.

The UAE Police said they checked surveillance cameras and found fingerprints to identify the perpetrators, which led to their arrest. One of the defendants was said to have returned part of the stolen money. A total of Dh1.8m cash was reportedly stolen from three locations.

In the ruling, which took place on Wednesday, only eight persons were convicted out of the 20 persons arrested for the crime, which involved attacking security guards in four violent attacks at ATMs and money exchanges across Sharjah in late 2016. According to a report by Gulf News, a daily English Newspaper in Dubai, the verdict was handed down by Judge Majid Al Muhairi of Sharjah Criminal Court.

Meanwhile, Gulf News said a prosecutor pointed out that the judgement could be appealed and that the sentences could be downgraded to life imprisonment.

Kcee Opens Up About Fake Music Industry

Nigerian music star, Kcee in a recent chat with Punch has revealed that the music industry in Nigeria is filled with fake people.

The Five Star Music artiste also revealed that some set of people have monopolized the industry in such a way that others are unable to make gains.

He said:

This is coming on the heels of the recent revelation by songstress, Waje stating that she is quiting music because it could no longer sustain her needs.

“I saw Waje’s video and I was touched. I was supposed to say something about it but I was busy with my album project. However, I spoke to a few people about it. The truth is that the industry is a fake one; I am not just talking about the Nigerian music industry, but globally. Everybody is struggling. I have been in this business for 19 years and at every point in time, you have A-list artistes and they are about ten”

“These set of people are the ones making all the money. There are hundreds of artistes behind them struggling to get to make it to the top ten list. These other artistes keep spending the same amount of money (the A-list artistes spend) to just get there and they also have to live like a celebrity. This costs a lot of money. If you do not have the drive and focus to keep the fire burning, it is going to weigh you down”
