A 22-year-old Nigerian lady who thought she was having fun by raising a false alarm that she has been raped in a London bar, will learn whether she will be sentenced to a jail term after her lies were discovered.

According to reports, Comfort Yinusa, had contacted emergency operators to report that she had been raped by two men, claiming they forced themselves on her.

The men were traced, arrested and they spent six weeks on police bail while they authorities spent £3,000 on forensic investigation to verify the report.

But her lies were found out when CCTV cameras installed in the bar later revealed that the attack never took place.

The cameras revealed that Yinusa and the two men inside a McDonalds laughing and joking together while mobile phone records proved one of alleged rapist was looking for his car at the time of the alleged attack.

When caught in her lie, she initially denied lying to police but changed her plea before she was due to go on trial. She will be charged accordingly with the very possibility of her facing jail time.
