A Sierra Leonne man who only have $300 in his pocket ended being an undesirable alien when Bureau of Immigration (BI) officials at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminal 1 barred him from entering the country on suspicion that he was a drug courier. Brima Edward Terry arrived on Thursday noon aboard Jetstar Airways from Singapore when authorities questioned him after he claimed he had a business transaction in Manila. However, BI head supervisor Paul Verzosa said they became suspicious when Terry could not produce any credit or business cards to support his claim. He was immediately boarded on a turn-around flight to Singapore.
