A Nigerian man, Dominic Adesanya, was apprehended by Secret Service agents and dogs after jumping the White House fence.
The 23-year-old, Adesanya around 7.15pm yesterday, on October 22nd, scaled the fence on the North Lawn of the building and walked about 20 yards past the fence before he was caught by Secret Service and dogs.
Adesanya was unarmed at the time of the accident but the White House was placed under a 90-minute lockdown as a safety measure.
Video of the episode taken by TV news cameras shows a man in white shorts just inside the White House fence on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The recording shows the man lifting his shirt as if to show agents that he has no arms. The man is then seen kicking and then evidently punching at least one Secret Service dog that was released on him before he is surrounded by agents.
President of the United States Barack Obama was thought to be in the White House at the time of the incident.
According to his Adesanya Facebook profile, he studied at Stevenson University for business administration and management and at Hartford Community College for an associate of science.
It appears that the boy is not a fan of Obama. His last Instagram post on Tuesday reportedly revealed an “I Voted sticker” captioned ‘Voted for this B #ImpeachObama.’
Adesanya has been put to a hospital for treatment and two of the dogs who confronted him are being attended to by a veterinarian.
A previous break to the White House was documented on September 19 when 42-year-old Omar Gonzalez got access into the main building leading to congressional hearings and the resignation of then Secret Service Director, Julia Pierson.
