A Nigerian man based in Maryland, Dominic
Adesanya, (pictured above) has been arrested after
jumping the White House Fence. According to police
reports, around 7.15pm yesterday Wednesday
October 22nd, Adesanya, 23, climbed the fence on
the North Lawn of the building and got about 20
yards past the fence before he was taken down by
Secret Service and dogs.
He’s currently in police custody but is being treated
in a hospital for injuries he sustained during the
encounter. He was attacked by K.9 dogs. Continue

The White House was on a lock-down for about two
hours after Adesanya jumped the fence. President
Obama was said to be in the White House at the
time of the incident. Police also said Adesanya was
not armed…but he’s still in big trouble.
According to his Facebook profile, he attended
Stevenson University for business administration
and management and Hartford Community College
for an associate of science, along with partially
business administration and management.
His father spoke with ABC 2 and said Adesanya had
been arrested at the White House before and that
the family had tried to get him help.
His jump comes weeks after a similar incident
happened, prompting the resignation of the director
of Secret Service, Julia Pierson on October 1st. In
September, a 42 year old man named Omar
Gonzalez also jumped the fence and got in the East
room before he was arrested. Guess there will be
more copycats. The Secret Service need to pay

dogs also had to be treated after Adesanya kicked
