Police Release Two Men Arrested For Jussie Smollett Attack WITHOUT Charges Filed

Published: Saturday 16th Feb 2019 by Rashad

Just hours after learning two brothers were arrested in connection with the attack on ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett (as we reported here), Chicago police have released the men with no charges filed.

Details inside:

In light of new evidence discovered, the department’s chief communications officer – Anthony Guglielmi – took to Twitter to announce the Nigerian siblings, Abimbola “Abel” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo (seen above), were no longer detained after the day’s interrogations.


As previously reported, the actors/bodybuilding models – who have also worked as extras on ‘Empire’ – had their home raided by police before being arrested.  Among the items discovered during that raid were containers of bleach, masks, rope, and an ‘Empire’ script. Click here to read more on that.

    It is very telling that Rashad is reporting this instead of David who was doing all of the Jussie Smollett “hate crime” reporting.

      Girlllllllllllllllllllllll hook-up/set up gone bad. Ms. Jussie tried a Stunt and it’s gonna backfire. Yasssssssssssssssssssssss FBI serve the children. Smells like a Lee Daniels Stunt to me……………..

    Their lawyer stated in her press conference that she will not be apart of “Jussie’s legal team.” It sure sounds like they told police what really happened and Jussie is lawyering up. We shall see.

    Looks like Jussie was looking for Mandingo.

    They’re probably straight and Jussie got too comfortable and tried to use his celebrity to sleep with one or both of them. One of them smacked the ish out of him and now he is crying wolf because he was rejected. I’m sure he didn’t foresee police and FBI getting involved and now, he’s in too deep to turn back smmfh. If he is bs, he gives all of us gays a bad name

      “He gives all of us gays a bad name”?
      Boy shut the f*** up. Does Trump give all white people a bad name?
      Just say you hate yourself and go.

    Charges were not filed cos they had nothing to do with the attack and were wrongly detained cos of hersay! Jussie is INNOCENT, you’ll see

    There is something gay about those two..I think there should be more investigating.

  8. FAF February 16, 2019

    I’m confused did Jussie ever say they were white or did gossip sites start that? And i thought they said they found rope and bleach at their house?

    Why would lee Daniels start a rumor like this for his show? It’s not been canceled even if no one watches

    You all didn’t mention they are nigerians. I bet the shaderoom wont either since all of Nigerians own and obsess over African Americans culture. You all never post about your people messing up

    Lord some of the comments on here are despicable and rooted in misery.

  11. Adina… Adina… Say Adina February 16, 2019
