New Details Revealed About An Attempted Murder Charge Against One Of Jussie Smollett’s Alleged Attackers

Posted On : April 16, 2019

The Jussie Smollett case is still a hot topic, even though all of the charges have been dropped. There’s plenty of drama to go around though as the Nigerian brothers associated with the attack, Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, known as Abel and Ola respectively, continue to make headlines in the aftermath of the case’s conclusion. Primarily Ola, who was once arrested for attempted murder a few years ago.

Triumph After Tragedy

The Osundairo brothers were thrust into the spotlight out of obscurity after the alleged attack on Smollett was reported back in late January. As the case unfolded it had more twists and turns than a roller coaster, with public opinion constantly changing. Once the Osundairo brothers were added to the narrative everything began to appear hazy and eventually Smollett was implicated as the one who may have allegedly orchestrated the attack. Eventually he was brought in for questioning and after a brief court case all of the charges were dropped. The Osundairo brothers, who remained cooperative during the investigation, were also spared of any charges.

The whirlwind drama seems to be a distant memory for some as the nation has moved onto other clickworthy stories, and the Osundairo brothers must certainly be counting their blessings that they escaped this major scandal relatively unscathed. PageSix reports that just last Friday Abel won the Golden Gloves senior novice division boxing championship in Chicago. And though this is good news a bit of bad news from Ola’s past is catching up to him as reports have resurfaced from a 2011 incident where he stabbed someone.
