(LOS ANGELES) -- The Nigerian man who flew from New York to Los Angeles with a fake ID and boarding pass last Friday is due in a Los Angeles courtroom Friday.
Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi, 24, faces stowaway charges. He was arrested in Los Angeles Wednesday after trying to board a Delta flight bound for Atlanta. FBI agents say they found 10 apparently stolen boarding passes in his bags.
The Transportation Security Administration now admits that Noibi somehow got through security at both New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport before he was caught by the FBI.
Joseph Morris, the former federal security director at JFK Airport, said the incident points to a major problem.
"It certainly shows that there's a weakness," Morris said.
The TSA has also confirmed that its security officer in New York never noticed that Noibi's ID and boarding pass were invalid.
