NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Authorities say a Newark, N.J., airport security supervisor arrested on a charge he pretended to be someone else to hide his status as an illegal immigrant used the identity of the victim in an unsolved murder case.
Nigerian Bimbo Olumuyiwa Oyewole was known by his co-workers as Jerry Thomas. He was arrested Monday at his home in Elizabeth.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says he had worked at Newark's Liberty International Airport for about 20 years and had passed background checks. It says he used the name Jerry Thomas since 1992, the year Thomas was killed in New York City.
New York police aren't saying whether he's a suspect in the unsolved murder case.
It's unclear when he is to appear in court to face charges including identity theft or if he has a lawyer.

This man will never escape or scale through this crime, God's willing, trust MEE. This is one of the people that are soiling and assassinating the images of other innocent Nigerians abroad. They are so evil minded and lack conscience. They have subjected many innocent, honest and hard working Nigerians to various humiliations and criminal oriented people in the faces of the international communities. There are still a lot of them out there everywhere. NEMESIS will soon catch up with the rest, trust MEE.

What else can i say?.You have said it all loud and clear.Believe me,there are still many of them in this kind of situation.Do you think they will have common sense to just Quit,Resign before the get busted like this guy?.They dont have any Dignity to do so until they are handcuff and disgrace.Mee,as you are aware,there are honest,hardworking and educated Nigerians in US and all over the world including You and Me.Nigerians have been getting Black eye all the time.When is this going to stop?.One more thing,i am not condoning what he did,but he was working and putting food on the table for his family and not using the name to commit Financial Crime.Either way,he commited a crime of Identity Theft.Once again,thanks for laying it down the way it is.Take care.

He must have stepped on a toe that knows the secret.
If he had used it for 20yrs and the police didnt find out. Then he would hv used it till he died.
If the police has now known, it means someone who knows him so well told them.
Sly | 5/15/2012 11:27:31 AM |
True talk.If he didn't tell anybody, his secret may still be safe,but again he isn't a smart guy.Why use a fake id for that long? Why remain in the US? The authorities were tipped,surely another Nigerian blew the whistle on him.Never ever trust anybody.
Chris | 5/15/2012 1:11:01 AM

For almost 20 years he was known as Jerry Thomas by his co-workers. And according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the area's main airports and other transist hubs, Mr. Oyewole had worked judiciously under several contractors and supervised about 30 guards. If not that federal report found the Transportation Security Administration's handling of security breaches at Newark Liberty International deficient, nobody would have known his little secret! But thank God, the investigation could not find any indication that he used the fake identity for any reason other than to live and work in the United States!
I don't have to be an illegal allien to understand what this man must have been going through before he obtained Mr.Thomas' personal information. Or how he would be a little jumpy any time somone tapped him on the shoulder, or looked at him suspiciously! But how did he get the deceased social security number you may ask? I think I know...in my opinion, um..I think an Angel put it in his wallet...or it fell from a bin liner...or he saw it in whillie bin...or his dead great grand mother gave it to his 3 year old daughter...or he dreamt of where to find it in their synagogue behind the pews in the back..or he didn't know he was not the real Mr. Thomas...or....or... After all he is from Nigeria, a country that have over 15 thousand active 'tarot card' readers and 50 thousand 'prophets'! Having said that, I don't want this man behind bars! I really don't!

Why is this a big news, now?
The men and women who have got their papers to live & work in the USA ,should come out and tell us how they got their papers; if shame and fear will allow them to do so !
90% of foreign workers in the US got their green card by marrying "anything " in skirts or in trousers , or by using fake IDs of dead or disabled people!This has been going on for many decades now in western countries.
So why all this noise?
Did Oyewole( Mr. Thomas) steal , commit terrorism or murder? NO! He was working hard & honestly !
THIS GUY WAS JUST WORKING FOR HIS HONEST DAILY BREAD!
I am sure ,before he got this fake ID WHICH ENABLED HIM TO WORK, the poor guy must have suffered a lot of hardship because he wanted to work and earn a living in the USA , but they refused him permission! So he helped himself and according to all his employers, he has performed his duties very well since he was employed over 20 years ago.
This is the injustice against Africans in the USA ,the UK, Europe and Canada!
These blawdy foreigners come to Africa to work and we welcome them with red-carpet treatment! WHY?
But if we attempt to go and work in their countries, they insult us , maltreat us and treat us all like criminals, just because we are trying to WORK and to earn crumbs from their tables!
And who SANK this guy by tipping off the US authorities?
I bet it was an aggrieved woman or a jealous and bitter fellow African or a fellow Nigerian!
Black man , THINK!
"O" | 5/20/2012 11:24:58 AM |
I wanted to ignore you(because it's obvious there is no commonality between you and I) but there are things you would need to hear-not for you to agree or understand but rather, for you to continue to eat yourself up unnecessarily! So Harry,I am in my late thirties-born and went to high school in Nigeria-left few weeks after my high school graduation. I have a triple citizenship-British,American,and of course,am a Nigerian. And oh, I have a German unlimited residency permit too! Sound strange,isn't it? The answer is simple-am a professional and yes, I am married (never divorced). When/if you become one, believe you me-no country would ever refuse you a visa because you would contribute immensely to the society! Next time be less literal or more careful!
For your information, I am not revisiting this issue. Have a wonderful evening! Love you too!
Harry | 5/20/2012 6:12:07 PM |
Just saw your silly comment.
If I posted a comment under ur comment, does it refer to ur comment ? No, not necessarily!
The " noise" here is the video report.
I wasn't even responding to ur comment because, I JUST DIDN'T READ you!
I know your type, so I don't respond to comments like yours.
So you are proud of your so-called treble -nationaity? That shows the level of your mentality.You're nothing but an Attention-seeker!
U think its a "big-deal" impressive achievement to possess a treble nationality? Naw, lil' boy!
It shows you are a rolling stone , gathering no moss and no intelligence. You don't know where you belong!
I am a British citizen, born in the UK of Nigerian parents and I am proud of the fact that I have lived in the West for over 30 years , so I know what people do here to get their work permits.
I maintain everything I have written in my previous comments with NO APOLOGIES to you or anyone.
I do not have the inclination nor the time to engage in exchanges with confused elements like you! End of story!

Its cos of people like "O" here that Nigeria may never achieve its full potential...he came off as very arrogant in his post and descended unfairly on someone who was stating facts and making his feelings known. "There is no commonality btw u and I", besides the fact that it was a statement that oozed of s****dity and arrogance, I'd expect a "professional" like yourself to know that the word commonality doesn't exist! So instead of insulting others on here go and brush up your sorry ass English and learn to mind your own biz and stop flaunting ur numerous citizenships on the internet... If you were truly a fulfilled person who could add value to this nation you won't be running from country to country kissing white mens asses for daily bread..professional my foot! Reply this thread
