Newark - Authorities say a long-time security supervisor at the Newark, New Jersey, airport has been arrested on a charge he was using the identity of a New York City man who was murdered 20 years ago.

The 54-year-old illegal immigrant from Nigeria was arrested on Monday at his home. The man is identified as Bimbo Olumuyiwa Oyewole. His co-workers knew him as Jerry Thomas.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says he had worked at Newark's Liberty airport for about 20 years and had passed background checks. He had worked under several contractors at the airport, most recently FJC Security Services.

A message left at the firm was not immediately returned.

He was due in court on Monday to face charges including identity theft.
