A Nigerian man, Dominic Adesanya, was arrested by Secret Service agents and dogs after jumping the White House fence.
The 23-year-old Dominic Adesanya 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, around 7.15pm yesterday, on October 22nd.
Mr Adesanya was weaponless at the time of the accident but the White House was placed under a 90-minute lockdown as a safety measure.
Filmed view taken by TV news cameras shows a man in white shorts just inside the White House fence on Pennsylvania Avenue.
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.
According to Adesanya Facebook profile, he studied at Stevenson University for business administration and management and at Hartford Community College for an associate of science.
Adesanya recent act comes weeks after a similar incident happened, prompting the resignation of the then director of Secret Service, Julia Pierson.
