How the hell did someone not check THIS ninja out?!
Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi, 24, a Nigerian-born man who was found with the stolen ID and up to 10 old boarding passes containing various names, was arrested Wednesday after attempting to board a flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta; five days after passing through layers of airport security at New York’s JFK airport to board a plane with a day-old boarding pass, federal authorities said…
Noibi was charged with being a stowaway aboard an aircraft, according to FBI Special Agent Kevin R. Hogg. He is being held at a Los Angeles Metropolitan Detention Center and is expected to be in court Friday.
Noibi allegedly managed to get through every layer of security with a fake ID and numerous boarding passes, at least one of which came from another passenger’s pocket.
The arrest came after Noibi allegedly boarded a plane Saturday under similar circumstances at JFK and travel to Los Angeles. Noibi boarded Virgin America flight 415 at JFK bound for L.A., according to an FBI affidavit.
Virgin Atlantic confirmed in a statement to ABC News that Noibi was allowed to board at the gate with a boarding pass for a flight on a different date, and that its agent “may have missed an alert when the passenger presented a boarding pass from an earlier flight.”
“It’s the human factor that’s involved in everything,” said Joseph Morris, a retired Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police officer and former security director at JFK Airport. “We can have the best technology. You can have the best processes and plans, but again it comes down to the human factor and human error.
It’s sad how they put us through all this embarrassing bullsh*t with pat-downs and advanced screening, but some a**hole with a student ID and stolen boarding passes can hop a couple planes around the country…SMH
