Department of Homeland Security officials are shocked to discover that an illegal alien held the position of security supervisor at an airport from which United Flight 93 departed on September 11, 2001 and crashed in a field in Pennsylvania when passengers rose up and attacked their terrorist captors.
In a shocking revelation, a Post Authority of New York and New Jersey police source told the Law Enforcement Examiner that a veteran security supervisor at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey -- one of three major airports in the New York City metropolitan area -- has been using the identity of a murder victim for about 20 years.
The police source stated that the illegal alien -- whose real name is believed to be Bimbo Olumuyiwa Oyewole -- was arrested Monday in his home in Elizabeth, New Jersey. The 54-year old Nigerian had assumed the identity of American citizen Jerry Thomas, who was a murder victim in 1992 in an unsolved homicide in New York City.
"Investigators have reopened the case in order to rule out Oyewole as a suspect in the 20-year old cold case," the police informed the Law Enforcement Examiner.
Homeland Security and Port Authority Police are investigating how Thomas' personal information was allegedly stolen by the Nigerian illegal alien
A Nigerian crime syndicate has been involved for a number of years in identity theft and creating fake identification documents including driver licenses, social security cards and other ID instruments.
According to the Law Enforcement Examiner source, "Oyewole apparently had all the documents he needed to successfully pass for Jerry Thomas, including a birth certificate and a social security card. He had worked under several contractors at the airport, most recently FJC Security Services.
Newark International is one of the nation's airports that opted to hire a private security agency rather than use U.S. Transportation Security Agency personnel. By law, security personnel working for New York security firms must be registered by the state after completing all of the requirements including a background check, fingerprinting, training class completion and passing a written examination.
FJC Security, which received the Newark International Airport contract in 2003, claims it indeed did conduct a due diligence background check on the Nigerian suspect as did the New Jersey State Police and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) component of the Department of Homeland Security.
DHS officials stated that Oyewole "had nothing in his background or his performance to that raised any red flags indicating a cause for concern or a reason to question the state police and federal government's background checks."
