Attorney for Nigerian Brothers Say They Will Testify Against Jussie Smollett

Oh, what a tangled web he tried to weave. Now actor and alleged hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett might have to face two of the people who supposedly helped him in his ruse.

Abel and Ola Osundairo, the Nigerian brothers who claim Smollett paid them to pull off the hoax, say they're prepared to testify against the 37-year-old actor at his trial.

"They have no ill will towards Mr Smollett. They really feel like their role in this now is to be honest about what they know," the brothers attorney Gloria Schmidt Rodriguez told the Daily Mail. "They hope he [Smollett] can be honest about what he knows."

This entire drama stems from January 2019, when Smollett claimed to Chicago police that he had been the victim of a verbal and physical hate crime at the hands of two supporters of President Donald Trump. Smollett claimed that while he was walking back from a Subway sandwich shop at 2 a.m. in the business district of Chicago while it was below zero outside, two men wearing Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats approached him, spewed racial and homophobic epithets at him, poured bleach on him, put a noose around his neck and yelled, "This is MAGA country!"

Charges against Smollett for allegedly making up the entire story were dropped in March 2019 by Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx.

Smollett was indicted on six counts of disorderly conduct Tuesday in Chicago by special prosecutor Dan Webb. He's due in court February 24th.
