Investigation Launched After Nigerian Man Boards U.S. Plane With Expired Boarding Pass, No Passport

A Nigerian national boarded a Virgin America flight from New York to Los Angeles last Friday without a passport and with an expired boarding pass that did not belong to him, Fox News confirms.

Authorities are looking into how Olajide Noibi boarded Virgin America Flight 415 at John F. Kennedy International Airport on June 24 without a valid passport or identification.

It wasn’t until the plane was airborne that flight crew realized an extra passenger was on the flight, according to an FBI affidavit obtained by Fox News. Noibi got off the plane in Los Angeles International Airport without incident and spent the next several days in the Los Angeles area.
