Japanese police last week Tuesday arrested a Nigerian man whom they accused of using a forged dependent military ID card to unlawfully attempt to enter Camp Zama in November.
Kanagawa Prefectural Police arrested Aisowieren Friday, 31, who listed no permanent address. They accused him of trying to enter the Army post at 5:40 p.m. Nov. 3, using a forged document.
Police said they were uncertain if Friday is the man’s real name, a spokesman said Wednesday.
Edward Roper, spokesman for U.S. Army Garrison Japan, said, “The army considers force protection a very serious issue and we’re glad that our force protection measures are working.”
According to an official from the Kanagawa police international investigation division, Friday showed guards his ID card at Gate 4, the pedestrian gate. When the guards inspected the ID more closely, the man ran off, the official said.
The gate guards confirmed the photo on the ID was of the man who’d tried to enter. Base personnel contacted Kanagawa police, who used the card to begin searching for the man.
Police later found and questioned a Japanese woman who encouraged Friday to turn himself in, the Kanagawa official said. Police would not say how they found the woman, believed to be a friend of Friday’s.
Friday turned himself in Tuesday before noon, the official said. He told police he wanted to shop on base and had bought the forged card from a Chinese person in Shibuya, police said. The official said the police worked closely with the base during the investigation.
Roper said he could not comment further on the investigation as of press time. Kanagawa police said they planned to send the case to the Yokohama prosecutor’s office on Thursday. The Nigerian remained in police custody on Wednesday.
