After police questioned the two Nigerian brothers they arrested Wednesday, they released them and said they’ve received new information that allowed the two Nigerian brothers to go free.
Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement on Friday night saying:
‘Due to new evidence as a result of today’s interrogations, the individuals questioned by police in the Empire case have now been released without charging and detectives have additional investigative work to complete,’
The Osundairo brothers’ attorney, Gloria Schmidt, spoke to the press and gave out some brief information about the interrogation. When asked if her clients had helped Smollett stage the attack Schmidt said:
‘There’s so many moving parts to this that will come out in time,’
She continued on to say:
‘I’m going to let them tell their story when the time is right.’
Attorney Michael Monico has revealed that he has been hired by Jussie Smollett, and will be representing him. Michael Monico told WGN’s “The Roe Conn Show” on Thursday.
Monico is a high powered criminal defense lawyer with decades of experience. He represented trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen in his criminal case.
People are currently confused about him hiring a criminal defense attorney, as the police made a statement yesterday they’re not investigating this as a Hoax, and Smollett is still being treated as a victim.
Police have also made a statement to reporters that they’ve ceased a bottle of bleach from Jussie’s house.
