It’s worse than the headline sounds. The “airport worker” was actually the supervisor of about 30 security guards at Newark Liberty Airport.
Law enforcement authorities involved in the investigation say Nigerian Bimbo Oyewole began using the identity of Queens, N.Y., resident Jerry Thomas three weeks before Thomas was shot and killed in 1992.
Mr. Oyewole stole the identity to mask his own identity as an illegal immigrant. His employer, FJC Security, says he passed all background checks.
An airport employee who was familiar with Oyewole as Thomas said the private security guards he supervised are responsible for manning TSA security checkpoints after passenger gates close for the evening and before they reopen in the morning.
As I occasionally ask, who will guard the guards?
