Exclusive video via CBS Chicago:

ABC 7 Chicago obtained footage of the Osundairo brothers leaving a Chicago store after buying supplies for the fake MAGA assault.

On January 29th, ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett told Chicago Police that two white Trump supporters ambushed him on the streets of Chicago at 2 AM while he was walking back to his apartment following a midnight run to Subway to grab a sandwich.

Smollett alleged the two white males recognized him as the actor from ‘Empire,’ hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck.


The hate hoax began to unravel after it was revealed two Nigerian brothers, who were also extras on Empire were paid $4,000 to stage the attack.

The FBI and US Postal Inspection Service are investigating whether Jussie Smollett played a role in sending a threatening and racist letter crafted from magazine clippings to the ‘Empire’ studio in Chicago prior to the fake MAGA attack.

CBS reported late Tuesday night that the brothers involved in the Jussie Smollett hate hoax were expected to testify before a grand jury.

According to reports, Jussie Smollett’s indictment is imminent.

Update: The Osundairo brothers were spotted entering a grand jury room, however it is unclear if they are actually testifying.

Subpoenas have been issued to obtain records from Jussie Smollett, reported ABC 7 reporter Rob Elgas.
