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.
