In police reports, the Northwestern Memorial Hospital took care of him leaving him ‘in good condition”, the next morning. During the time, the police came at his residence at 2:40 AM and found a white rope around Jessie’s neck. The artist explained that the assault is the prompt action to his censure upon Trump administration.

The cops found two brothers named Ola and Abel Osundairo involved in the incident on 13 February 2019. The culprits had a minor role in the TV series, Empire and knew Jussie from then only. Two days later, they were prison free on 15 February 2019 “due to new evidence” where the police found Jussie paying $3500 to the siblings to plan the attack.
