Nigerian Bimbo Olumuyiwa Oyewole was known by his co-workers as Jerry Thomas. He was arrested Monday at his home in Elizabeth.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says he had worked at Newark’s Liberty International Airport for about 20 years and had passed background checks. It says he used the name Jerry Thomas since 1992, the year Thomas was killed in New York City.

New York police aren’t saying whether he’s a suspect in the unsolved murder case.

It’s unclear when he is to appear in court to face charges including identity theft or if he has a lawyer.
