The two Nigerian brothers who were allegedly paid by actor Jussie Smollett to carry out a fake hate crime against him have now finally agreed with prosecutors working the case.
As The Daily Mail reports:
The two brothers who Jussie Smollett allegedly paid to attack him last year have decided once again to cooperate with prosecutors in the ongoing case against him, a day after backing out.
Abel and Ola Osundairo had agreed to cooperate with the special prosecution of Smollett as it proceeds.
They told police he paid them $3,500 to carry out a fake, homophobic attack on him last January – something Smollett vehemently denies.
On Wednesday, Abel said they had changed their minds because the police department was still treating them as suspects.
It has been alleged that Smollett arraigned the fake attack in an attempt to get his bosses to pay him more in his acting job in ‘Empire.’
