Abimbola “Abel” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo’s attorney released a statement to CBS Chicago, saying that the two men felt “tremendous regret” for being involved in the situation. In addition to that, they also apologized for the negative impact it may have had on people across the country, especially for those who were victims of hate crimes.

“My clients have tremendous regret over their involvement in this situation, and they understand how it has impacted people across the nation, particularly minority communities and especially those who have been victims of hate crimes themselves,” the statement read.

As we reported, the two were captured in surveillance video purchasing a red hat and ski masks. Chicago police said the community helped them catch the men by giving officers access to surveillance cameras in the neighborhood. Ola and Abel Osundairo was arrested and admitted that Smollett paid them $3,500 to stage an attack outside his Streeterville apartment building last month.

Smollett, who initially reported it was two white men who attacked him, was arrested but later released from the Cook County Jail last week after posting bond. He is charged with a felony for filing a false police report. He is due back in court on March 14.
