Naomi Oni, 20, was on her way home from work to her home in Dagenham, East London, on 30 December when an anonymous attacker, wearing a niqab, threw the corrosive liquid at her, leaving her with serious burns on her head, neck, arms, legs and body.
She has now released the shocking images above to the Evening Standard in a hope that they may help track her attacker, whose face was obscured by the traditional Muslim women’s dress, which completely covers the face apart from the eyes.
Ms Oni had been five minutes from her home in Dagenham after finishing work for the day at lingerie store Victoria’s Secret at Westfield Stratford.
Southwark Councillor Ian Wingfield said: “Southwark Council is assisting Ms Oni and her mother with their application for housing.”
Ms Oni, 22, told BBC London 94.9: “I’m tired of telling people how I feel then going back to a one-bed hostel with my Mum.”
She said she had been living in the same room as her mother for the past 12 months.
“Since that date’s happened, I’ve never had freedom,” she added.
“I’ve never had privacy to just roll on the floor in my room and cry my heart out.”
“I would just like to be in a secure home.”
