Empire star Jussie Smollett has been indicted for filing a false police report.
The Nigerian brothers involved in the case, Ola and Abel Osundairo, testified in front of the grand jury, saying they staged the attack at Jussie’s request and were financially compensated $4000 for their involvement.
The two brothers even said that they drove around with Jussie a few days before the incident to find a location to execute the “attack.” They even said they rehearsed it. Their punishment, however, will not be as steep as Jussie’s as they are set to return to Nigeria.
Footage of the brothers purchasing supplies ahead of the staged attack was also released online.
I tracked down surveillance of the Osundairo's buying supplies before "attack"
Sources say Jussie Smollet told brothers what to buy.
Countless phone calls placed for this.
