Oh Boy… Security Cameras Caught Jussie Smollett in a “Dry Run” with Nigerian Osundairo Brothers 2 Days Before the Hate Hoax Attack

The Chicago Police Department back in June 2019 released 70 hours of unseen surveillance footage from the Jussie Smollett hate hoax.

In a clip posted to Twitter by Charlie De Mar, Smollett’s cohorts in crime, the Nigerian Osundairo brothers were filmed on their way to meet Jussie Smollett on the night of the fake hate crime.

Recall, Jussie Smollett paid the Nigerian brothers over $3,000 to help him pull off the “MAGA Country” hate hoax crime in January.

In previously released footage, the Osundairo brothers are seen purchasing all of the supplies for the hate hoax such as red hats, rope and bleach.

A judge ordered a special prosecutor to investigate the handling of Smollett’s case after the Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx dropped all the charges without notifying the Chicago police department.


On Wednesday in the trial of Jussie Smollett police released video of Smollett and the Osundairo brothers on a “dry run” days before the faked attack.

They practiced their racist hate hoax before their late-night stunt.

The Daily Mail reported:

Testimony in Jussie Smollett’s trial will continue on Wednesday, after jurors on day two of the trial were shown security footage of Smollett doing a ‘dry run’ two days before his alleged hate crime attack.

On Tuesday, jurors were shown footage of Smollett walking near the scene of the alleged attack with brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo on January 27, 2019.

The brothers are then seen going to the Crafty Beaver for rope, a beauty supply store for masks and hats, and a bank to deposit the $3,500 check Smollett paid them to commit the act.

The brothers paid their bill at the beauty supply with a $100 bill Smollett gave them, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Camera footage also showed Smollett pick the brothers up in an alley on Jan. 25, four days before the Jan. 29 attack.

Defense attorneys for Smollett also questioned a detective over a hot sauce bottle that smelled of bleach that was found at the scene by a New York Post reporter a week after the alleged hate crime occurred.

The actor told police that his attackers used racist and homophobic slurs, wrapped a rope around his neck and poured an ‘unknown substance’ on him. Police say Smollett, who is Black and gay, told detectives the attackers also yelled he was in ‘MAGA country’

Smollett’s attorney Nenye Uche asked lead detective Michael Theis on Tuesday if a hot sauce bottle was used to contain the bleach used on Smollett, to which Theis replied ‘yes’ but added that police weren’t the ones who found the evidence, the New York Post reported.
