A Nigerian man with a criminal record who was deported in 2006 tried to re-enter the United States through Derby Line. But the U.S. Border Patrol picked him up shortly after he walked across the Canadian border into Orleans County. According to federal court documents, Oyebode Michael Adewakun, 62, was arrested just after 2 a.m. on Jan. 6 as he traveled from Caswell Avenue in Derby Line in a silver SUV. Caswell Avenue runs parallel to the International Boundary Line. Adewakun is now being held in federal detention at Northwest State Correctional Facility in St. Albans. He has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of re-entry of deported aliens and illegal entry into the United States.
