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.

New Jersey’s attorney general’s office is working with the NYPD and other authorities to determine if Oyewole had any role in Thomas’ death, which is unsolved.

As Thomas, Oyewole worked first as a security guard and then as a supervisor for a private security firm at Newark Liberty.

He pleaded not guilty Tuesday to second-degree identity theft and is being held on $250,000 bail
