friend

A twenty-year-old-woman, Naomi Oni, had acid thrown in her face by a woman who turned out to be a former friend of hers.

Naomi Oni was walking to her home in Daggenham from Victoria’s Secret in Westfield Stratford, where she works. At 12:40am when she was five minutes from her home and talking to her boyfriend on the phone, she heard some one behind her. She turned round to see a woman who then threw acid in her face, blinding her in one eye and causing severe visual impairment in the other.

It later transpired that the woman who carried out the attack had once been her friend.
