BREAKING: Two Nigerian Brothers Arrested for Jussie Smollett's Assault!

There's finally been an arrest made in the Jussie Smollett assault case!

The two men, who are brothers, were the persons of interest seen on surveillance footage outside of Jussie's apartment building and walking along the street.

TMZ first reported "Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, and Chicago cops are now calling them "potential suspects" ... as opposed to persons of interest. We know it was their home cops raided Wednesday and seized a long list of potential evidence ... including several bottles of bleach."

The brothers were picked up at O'Hare International Airport Wednesday night by Chicago police.

"A Chicago law enforcement source tells us the next step may be a lineup in which Jussie will be asked to identify the culprits. This raises a potential problem because, as we first reported, Jussie initially said his attackers were white and yelled "MAGA country."

The Osundairos, from Nigeria, just don't fit that profile."

"Ola played a prison inmate on season 2 of "Empire." It's unclear exactly how well they know Jussie, but we know Jussie follows their joint Instagram account. Abel also says he's worked on "Empire."

This is such an interesting twist in the story. It looks like these two were known to Jussie prior to the assault.

We're 100% positive there's more to this story and we're going to keep you posted as more details become available!
