Nigerian brothers, the Osundairos ready to testify against Jussie Smollett

The Osundairo brothers, Abel and Ola and Jussie Smollett

The Nigerian brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, at the centre of the Jussie Smollett ‘hoax’ attack scandal said they are prepared to testify at his trial and that they will not feel vindicated unless the Empire actor is found guilty of lying to police.

the brothers expressed their readiness to give testimony via their lawyer, Schmidt Rodriguez.

Smollett was charged on Tuesday with lying to police in a six-count, grand jury indictment which revived the case against him. Last year, he was arrested after claiming to have been the victim of a racist, homophobic attack in Chicago. He iss now due in court on 24 February.

The Osundairo brothers, who knew Smollett, said he paid them to stage the attack against him and that they went along with it for $3,500, not knowing the media storm it would create.
