According to Huffington Post, Naomi Oni was heading home after midnight of that fateful day when that attacker pour acid on her face in Dagenham.
She called police on getting home before an ambulance was dispatched to take her to the hospital.
Oni has spent the last month receiving skin grafts and nearly went blind after the attack, which left her with serious burns on her head, neck, arms, legs and body.
She has now released the images in a bid to trace her attacker, who fled from the scene.
She told the Evening Standard the attack had “destroyed” her life and left her fearful of showing her face in public.
She said: “I look in the mirror and it just isn’t me. I’ll never look the same again. I’ve always been outgoing and confident in my job and in my personal life, used to getting attention for the way I dress or my hair, but now I don’t want anyone looking at me.”
Oni says she decided to reveal her injuries after being inspired by model Katie Piper, who founded a charity after an acid attack by her boyfriend.
No arrests have been made and officers from Barking and Dagenham CID are continuing to retain an open mind as to the motive of the attack.
Anyone with information are asked to call Barking and Dagenham CID on 0203 276 1058 or 07500 108 529. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
This is wickedness of the highness order.
We wish her quick recovery.
