“I saw this Muslim woman wearing a niqab. I thought it was a bit strange to see her at that time of night, but she didn’t say anything and I kept on walking. Then I felt a splash on my face. It burned and I screamed out.

“I started running and screaming, holding my face. All the way home. I was screaming. I then banged on the door. I was hysterical. Luckily my godmother, who is a pharmacist, was at home with my mum and she helped me.

“She kept dipping my face in water and trying to calm me down. I was in shock, saying, ‘Who would do that? How could anyone do this’?”

Oni was headed home after leaving her work at Victoria’s Secret, just exiting a bus in East London when the attack happened. Naomi, who has undergone a series of skin grafts, is now scared to leave her house.

“I look in the mirror and it isn’t me. I’ll never look the same again.”

The Victoria’s Secret worker suffered burns to her head, eyes, neck, chest, arms and legs. She has now recovered vision in her left eye and has partial sight in her right.

“Even with the support of my family, friends and boyfriend, I feel very alone. Nothing is going to be the same any more.”
