Nigerian who stole identity of a US man for 20 years puzzles US Investigators



US investigators are currently looking at how a Nigerian man identified as Bimbo Olumuyiwa Oyewole successfully eluded the New Jersey Police, US customs and Border Protection and his employers for 20 years, after stealing the identity of a murdered US citizen.

He was arrested at his home in Elizabeth, New Jersey., Monday morning after an anonymous tip to the Port Authority several weeks ago lead to an investigation.

At his appearance in court in Essex County on Tuesday, Oyewole, pleaded not gulity to a 1-count charge of identity theft and he is being held on $250,000 bail.

Oyewole in 1989 immigrated illegally to the U.S. before finding work at an airport serving both New Jersey and New York.

Officials said that Oyewole, 54, used the dead man’s identity to acquire a top security position in Newark Liberty International Airport.

According to the airport authorities, Oyewole started working at the Newark Airport in 1992 under the name Jerry Thomas.

On the 20th of July, 1992, Jerry Thomas, 41, was found shot dead in the head and chest inside a room at the Jamaica YMCA.

Investigators are considering whether Oyewole had anything to do with Thomas’ death and if he was involved in criminal activity at the airport.

The NYPD is checking his fingerprints to see if they match those at the scene of Thomas’ unsolved murder.

“In this case, the defendant [Oyewole] utilized an elaborate and complex scheme of identity theft to defraud his employer, the State of New Jersey, the federal government and the Port Authority,” Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Inspector General Robert Van Etten said.

Oyewole worked at the airport under several contractors, most recently for FJC Security Services, starting in 2003, where he supervised about 30 guards.

When he was an employee at FJC Security Services, the firm reviewed both his birth certificate and social security card.

“During his time with FJC, he had nothing in his record or his performance to indicate a cause for concern, or a reason to question the State Police and federal government’s background checks,” said FJC spokesman Michael McKeon in A statement.

The New Jersey State Police and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection also vetted him.

A statement issued by the Homeland Security Transportation Security Subcommittee of the US House of Representatives Tuesday said a hearing on airport security breaches would hold on Wednesday (today).

Though the statement did not make reference to the arrest of Oyewole, it however said the hearing would be on, “Access Control Point Breaches at Our Nations’s Airports: Anomalies or Systemic Failures?”

“It’s unbelievable,” a traveler said.

“They need to use fingerprints. They need to use eye retinas. We need to get into the space age and update our programs because these things aren’t working.” The traveller added.

    He obviously knew enough about the real Jerry Thomas to be able to use his details so convincingly. I wouldn’t speculate as to whether he was involved in the murder, but I don’t doubt he either met him (Jerry Thomas) in person or someone who knew him and had access to Jerry’s basic personal details.

    What is the proof this man is truely a Yoruba man? If he was fake Jerry Thomas for 20yrs he could also be fake Bimbo Oyewole for x yrs. This man looks very much like Boko Haram from Kogi/Bauchi state. Pls this man is not a Nigerian. We do not have his record. Keep him for life and respect his Human Right and Freedom of speech, to be Gay, same sex marriage and all those devilish western lifestyles. Just keep him there in USA. .

Relaxation Of CBD In NFL – An Insight



Why You Should Buy YouTube Views Cheap

There has been a lot of buzz around CBD in recent years, especially in the health and wellness industry.
Many sports associations and players around the world have also recognized CBD as a pro sports

However, one of the most coveted associations- the National Football League, more popularly known as
the NBD had been quite strict in its ban of cannabis related products, including CBD. But in recent times,
there seems to be some good news in store both for eh players and every CBD shop as the association is
considering lifting the blanket ban and allowing players to use CBD, which has become popular for its
medical properties.

What Is CBD?

Before we proceed to understand the decision of the NFL, it is important to understand what CBD is and
how it is different from the other cannabis product. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the primary chemicals
found in the cannabis plant, the other being THC. However, contrary to common beliefs, CBD is not
psychoactive in nature. It does not cause the user to feel ‘high.’ This is because high quality CBD does
not contain even trace amounts of THC, which is responsible for these reactions.

In fact, many recent studies indicate that CBD is an excellent medicine to cure several physical and
mental conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, and depression.

Why Do Sportspersons Recommend CBD Use?

If you are into sports and athletics, avoiding injuries is almost impossible. While painkillers may be
helpful in managing the pain, they have numerous side effects on the other organs of the body. That is
why many players and athletes are now in favor of using CBD to manage their pains and injuries.

Sourced from organically grown hemp, CBD helps in alleviating the pain without injuring any other
organs of the body. It is no wonder that players are in favor of using CBD in place of the synthetic drugs
that are available in the market.

CBD For Sleep

For your body to perform its best, it is important for it to be well-rested and rejuvenated. This can only
happen through sound sleep. For many players, who suffer from muscle cramps and injuries, getting
proper sleep becomes a challenge. CBD can be very helpful in those circumstances as well. By soothing
the nerves, CBD helps the body to fall asleep faster and also the quality sleep that it needs.

Good sleep can also help the body in replenishing its worn and torn tissues faster.

The Changes Anticipated In NFL

The NFL, which has one of the strictest policies regarding drug testing, is now considering changing its
policies, especially the ones that are related to CBD. The players who test positive for cannabis will not
be directly suspended from the team. Rather a fine will be imposed on them as per the number of times
that they test positive.

The threshold for testing has also been changed as the players now will only be tested during the first
two weeks of the training camp, in place of the April- August testing policy that was followed earlier.

These progressive changes seem to be a direct result of the changed perception that most people have
regarding CBD today.

It is also worthy to note here that CBD is legal in all the American states, with minor restrictions on the
amount and the concentration of the product. Players are the happiest with this new move as they are
of the opinion that CBD works much better and is far less addictive than the painkillers that are given on
prescription. Even the sports associations around the world are also likely to reconsider their policy on
CBD after this change.
