Bail Denied For Nigerian Man Accused Of Being A Stowaway

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man, who allegedly breached airport security and boarded a cross-country Virgin America flight, has been ordered to remain in federal custody in Los Angeles.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Wilner said Friday he was hesitant to grant bond to Oluwaseun Noibi based on the circumstances of the case.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports.

Another hearing will be held at a later date regarding whether the man might be released on bond.

Investigators say the 24-year-old boarded a flight in New York last Friday using an expired boarding pass with someone else’s name on it. The crew didn’t realize an extra passenger was onboard until mid-flight.

After arriving in Los Angeles and spending several days in the city, Noibi was arrested while allegedly trying to board a Delta flight with another expired pass.

      You must be a school dropout. What part of “Bail Denied For Nigerian Man”, did you fail to understand? I suppose the name “Oluwaseun Noibi” didn’t give you a clue either. Moron.

    This all could have been prevented with an increase in TSA personnel.

  • Vera Dalmatoff

    Are you serious RonaldD…. I heard he was questioned by TSA and somehow convinced them to allow him to board. Those TSA agents need to get fired.

    He should have changed his name to Julio or Juan and crossed the border from Mexico. with 10 kids and he would be a rich man. California would have given him free housing, food and spending money. He would have received free college and would not have to worry about being arrested at checkpoints for being drunk or driving without a license.

    But since he is not from Mexico he is being charged by the FBI.
