Cops Arrest Jussie Smollett ‘Potential Suspects’ For Battery
“Potential suspects” have been arrested in the Jussie Smollett investigation — two brothers that were extras in Empire.
The two brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundario, were arrested by Chicago law enforcement and are now being linked as “potential suspects”. They were arrested for battery in connection with Jussie’s investigation.
Their home was raided on Thursday and potential evidence was seized which included bottles of bleach — a chemical allegedly used during the incident that took place in Chicago when Jussie walked from Subway back to his apartment.
Recently, several outlets have reported Jussie may have “faked” the attack with reasons including “he was being written out of Empire” and it was an attempt to “stay in the show”.
Interestingly, Jussie follows Abimbola on Instagram, raising suspicion for critics calling him out on the incident being a setup.
It’s unclear as to whether the brothers are the two in the grainy CCTV footage released last month.
