Nigerian woman charged over acid attack


 A woman has been charged with throwing sulphuric acid on a 21-year-old woman leaving her scarred for life.
 Naomi Oni


aomi Oni, 21, who works for Victoria’s Secret at Westfield in Stratford, east London had her face, arm, hand and a leg burned.

She was also temporarily blinded in the attack which happened as she walked home from a bus stop in the early hours of December 30 last year.

Ms Oni spent almost a month in hospital while doctors fought to save her sight and carried out skin grafts to repair the scarring to her face.

At one point she was forced to deny rumours that the wounds may have been self-inflicted.

Today the CPS announced that Mary Konye had been charged in connection with the attack on Naomi and will appear in court tomorrow.

Damaris Lakin, CPS London Senior Crown Prosecutor, said he will appear before Barkingside Magistrates Court on 1 May.
 

Naomi Oni suffered burns to her face, head, arm and leg in an apparent attack in December

Mr Lakin said: ‘I concluded that there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction and that it is in the public interest to charge Ms Konye with throwing or casting a corrosive fluid with intent to burn, maim, disfigure, disable or do grievous bodily harm.’

Ms Oni described how she got off a bus on Lodge Avenue, Dagenham, shortly after 12.30am.

She became aware of someone behind her as she spoke to her boyfriend, law student Ato Owede, 24, on the phone and was then sprayed in the face with a liquid which began burning her skin.

‘I felt a presence behind me a few minutes away from home so I turned around, not really expecting to see anybody,’ she said.

‘But I saw a person wearing a niqab, a little taller than me. They were just staring coldly at me.

‘I was startled so I turned away. Suddenly, from nowhere, I felt a splash on my right side and I just ran. I thought to myself, “Someone is trying to kill me”.

‘Before I even realised, it was burning, I somehow knew it was acid.


 ‘I didn’t look back, I didn’t risk it. I didn’t know if they knew me, or my name, if they had been sent.

‘It was all so fast. I just thought to myself “this person will not kill me, they will not take my life”.

‘I ran for my life, screaming, down the road. I was still on the phone to Ato so I told him to call 999.’

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
