It is alleged that between May 29 and June 18, 2014 at Barrouallie, Nichols, being a prohibited immigrant, entered the state without a passport.

He is also charged with disembarking a boat in Barrouallie without the consent of immigration officials between May 29 and June 18.

Nichols attempted to explain to the court that he was held at gunpoint by two Grenadian men who dropped him off in the Leeward village.

Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias stopped Nichols and told him that he will get the chance to tell his story at trial.

He was remanded in custody.(KW)
