It’s unclear at what point Monico began to represent Smollett, but Monico, revealed in a radio interview on Thursday in Chicago that he is representing Smollett, according to the Daily Mail.

As we reported, police in Chicago arrested two Nigerian men who had previously been described as suspects in the attack. However they were later released after ‘new evidence’ had emerged in their interrogations that now requires further detective work.

Smollett states during his recent interview that the men who attacked him were white. It is unclear what led police to the brothers Olabinjo ‘Ola’ Osundairo, 27, and Abimbola ‘Abel’ Osundairo, 25 after Smollett conformed his attacker’s description.

The Osundairo brothers’ attorney, Gloria Schmidt even spoke out to reporters to the latest updates on her clients and what she thinks about the case,

“There’s so many moving parts to this that will come out in time,’ Schmidt said when asked if her clients had helped Smollett stage the attack. ‘I’m going to let them tell their story when the time is right.”
