Osundairo brothers pick up items from Jussie Smollett “attack” case including gun
Abel and Ola Osundairo, the two brothers that claim to have been paid to “attack” Jussie Smollett, have finally started getting back the items they used in the infamous incident.
A shotgun, a safe, household supplies and clothes are some of the items that the court deemed non-pertinent to the case and could therefore be repossessed by the brothers according to TMZ.
They will have to wait longer for some items, including a black face mask and a red hat.
The remaining items are at the disposal of Smollett’s legal team, which can inspect them before the commencement of his trial in which he is facing 6 felony counts for allegedly lying to the police.
Chicago Police has said brothers Abel and Ola Osundairo were paid $3,500 by actor Jussie Smollett to stage what Smollett claimed was a racist and homophobic attack against him in January 2019.
Before concluding that Smollett had orchestrated the attack, police raided the bothers’ home as they were returning from a trip to Nigeria and identified them as persons of interest. But they were released without charges after they told police they were paid to stage the attack.
