“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.

The office of the president has been based in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs since a fire in 2006 gutted the nearby presidential mansion.

 

 

“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.

“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.

But spokesman Garba Shehu said the office required renovation after damage was done to the furniture and air conditioning in his absence. He said the president had a “well-equipped” office at home that he could work “perfectly” from.

 

 

Many users of Nigerian social media had cast doubt on the reason given for Mr Buhari working from home.

Some mocked the irony of the rat story because Mr Buhari is nicknamed the ‘”Lion President”.

 

But others have come to the defence of the president’s spokesperson’s story.

One Twitter user @MandyChisholm wrote: “It is possible for rat to destroy Buhari’s office, I kid you not, Nigerian rats are bloody.

 

 

“I remember the group of rats that ate my mattress, drank my bottle of olive oil, ate the whole bottle and everything else in site but not the rat poison. So imagine what political rats can do…”
