On Petition for Review of an Order of the Board of Immigration Appeals. Submitted: March 29, 2018 Decided: April 2, 2018 Before KING and DUNCAN, Circuit Judges, and SHEDD, Senior Circuit Judge. Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Chukwuemeka Samuel Ukaonu, Petitioner Pro Se. Deitz P. Lefort, Erik Robert Quick, Office of Immigration Litigation, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Washington, D.C., for Respondent. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Chukwuemeka Samuel Ukaonu, a native and citizen of Nigeria, petitions for review of an order of the Board of Immigration Appeals (Board) affirming without opinion the immigration judge’s denial of his requests for asylum and withholding of removal. 1 We have thoroughly reviewed the record, including the transcript of Ukaonu’s merits hearing and all supporting evidence. We conclude that the record evidence does not compel a ruling contrary to any of the administrative factual findings, see 8 U.S.C. § 1252(b)(4)(B) (2012), and that substantial evidence supports the adverse credibility determination. See Tewabe v. Gonzales, 446 F.3d 533, 538 (4th Cir. 2006). Accordingly, we deny the petition for review. In re Ukaonu (B.I.A. Oct. 6, 2017). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process. PETITION DENIED 1 Ukaonu does not challenge the denial of his request for protection under the Convention Against Torture. He has therefore waived appellate review of this claim. See Ngarurih v. Ashcroft, 371 F.3d 182, 189 n.7 (4th Cir. 2004). 2 17-2294 Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ca4 4th Cir. Chukwuemeka Ukaonu v.
