Uche Jombo, a veteran Nollywood actress, has urged false rape accusers to serve the same punishment as rapists. This comes amid the acquittal of ex-Manchester City player Benjamin Mendy, who was accused of raping a woman and attempting to rape another. Mendy was cleared of rape and attempted rape by a jury at Chester Crown Court. Mendy missed City’s historic treble last season.

Through her twitter handle, Jombo declared “False rape accusations should attract same jail term as rape”
