The Chicago Police has raided the home of two men suspected to be the persons who assualted Empire’s star, Jussie Smollett.
Recall that Jussie Smollett had been hospitalised after he was reportedly injured by two men in what looks like a homophobic attack.
After combing through hours of surveillance footage from both public and private cameras around the scene, the Chicago police have managed to come up with photos of two men suspected attackers of the Empire Star Jussie Smollett.
Recently, Chicago Police Spokesman, Anthony Guglielmi has revealed that the two men investigators have questioned as persons of interest in the alleged attack on actor Jussie Smollett, are Nigerians who have also appeared on the show “Empire”.
In a tweet on Thursday, Guglielmi said “the people of interest are alleged to be in the area where a crime was reported. They are not considered suspects at this time.”
The men are Nigerian brothers and were questioned by police after flying into O’Hare airport from Nigeria on Wednesday evening, Guglielmi said. Police said they searched the men’s apartment two nights ago.
