Acid victim Naomi Oni's alleged attacker finally nabbed. It was her friend!

21 year old acid victim Naomi Oni was disfigured for life after an unknown person wearing a Niqāb threw acid in her face as she walked home from work on Sunday December 30th 2012 in Lodge Avenue Dagenham, east London, (If you missed qit, read about it HERE)

Naomi only described her attacker as a woman wearing an Islamic veil. Over a year later, police has been able to identify the person behind the veil. It was her jealous 21 year old friend, Mary Konye.

According to new reports released by police and tendered in court, Mary, a student at Hertfordshire university, disguised herself in a Niqāb, which showed only her eyes and closely followed Naomi home and allegedly poured the acid on her when they got to a deserted area. She fled the scene immediately after.

Naomi suffered horrific burns on her face and chest and was left scarred for life. Continue...


Mary Konye, who has since been arrested and facing trial, had been Naomi's friend since secondary school. Mary had always been jealous of Naomi, the court heard, and when they fought Mary decided she wanted Naomi disfigured for life and attacked her with acid.
 Naomi Oni's lawyer said in court today: 
'Naomi will tell you about her friendship with the defendant. In particular she will tell you how in the past they had an up and down relationship and how the defendant had admitted to her that on one occasion in anger she threatened to throw acid at Naomi.
'There was a reason why the defendant would have chosen to make such an unusual sort of threat. In the past the two of them had discussed a young woman called Katie Piper.
'She was a woman who had acid thrown at her and that attack had been reported in the media.
'Naomi and the defendant had discussed this and it appears that the defendant knew that Naomi had been particularly moved by Katie Piper’s ordeal.
'Naomi stated that she and the defendant had fallen out in the past and says that there was an occasion during a row when she called the defendant ugly.
'She says that they were later back on speaking terms and importantly, that the defendant said to her that she (the defendant) had been so angry at the time that she had said to someone else, a friend of the defendant’s called Kamilah Andrews, that she (the defendant) wanted to throw acid at Naomi.
'Naomi believed that the defendant had realised just how upset she had been by Katie Piper’s horrible ordeal.'
'She could not see the face of the person, just the light-brown coloured skin around the eyes. She believed it was a female. The woman was staring at her.
'All of a sudden Naomi felt a liquid being thrown into her face. She screamed and immediately felt her face burning. She could smell her skin and hair burning. She immediately ran home.
Mary Konye denies pouring acid on Naomi. The trial continues...

Something similar happened to me way back in college. But I thank God the attackers(male) didn't think of acid rather they used the jagged edge of a broken star bottle to draw deep nasty cuts all over my face. Almost bled to death that night but for a neighbour whom was God sent! But I thank God for my life. Found out my best friend whom was almost like a sister to me planned the attack. The scars are still there as a reminder to be wary of jealous girlfriends. I Have not been the same since then but for the grace of God. Gloria

Why are women so evil towards one another?Why be jealous of what another person has been blessed with?Wether it's beauty, wealth etc...Don't you know that the more you are happy for others- the more you will be blessed? Why be jealous of a girl that looks better than you?lol! Ever heard of the saying...Never pray for beauty but FAVOR!!!It is God's favor that will make people know you and help you-not beauty and surely not your family name or the wealth...eventhough those things do sometime make things easier for you but please always remember when God chooses to bless someone-not matter what you do- you will never be able to stop it! When a star is meant to shine bright-it will still shine bright!So please...Turn that hatred into love!!!Be happy for others- so, God can also bless you for others to be happy for you.If you have a jealous heart,please pray for God to deliver you- you need it!It is not not normal to be jealous of another person oh. Don't let the devil use you as his instrument.

I had a friend and the girl dealt with me spiritually as in jazz me to the point everything went bad...My life went from almost a 10 to 0. All in the name of jealousy.And the bitch used to act like she was my sister. I was always there for her, I treated her like my blood sister only for her to betray me with jazz.lol.I used to see this girl in my dream and I never understoood what it meant until I started seeking help from my pastor and really praying hard. I would rather have a friend that's ahoe than a jealous friend becuase with jealous comes witchcraft.A jealouscan fuck up your destiny finish. Na wa oo. Now, I just keep to myself...Once I come across girls that are too friendly and wanna get close to me I start questioning their intentions. I trust no woman!!!Females are so jealous and evil,I will continue to keep to my self until I die. No female friends for me. I usually just keep them at a distance-hi/bye,whatsapp, bbm and instagram type of friendship...So far my life is at peace and I love it like that.

Ladies, stay away from jealous friends they will kill you,steal your man,jazz you- overall just block you from alot of good things.

it's interesting reading all this comments and finding out that most people didn't make any reference(s) to religion since her name is Mary. I remember reading the comments on the last post about her and 90% of it was about islam/muslims and all sort of negativety.
people need to grow up, be sensible and reason rationally without making references to religion/etnicity.
The next time you read a post, please look beyond the name, religion and ethnic group. We shouldn't be quick to judge or jump into conclusions. Please remember that even Mary is innocent until proven guilty. Adepj

Jealousy is a very strong force!!! I saw it in action when I completed my NYSC and relocated to Lagos.
I was shocked to find out that your so-called friends are jealous of everything about you, from your hair (not weave-on -o-) to your body type, to your eye colour, mannerism and even the fact that you are single and supposedly free.
Once the green-eyed monster shows up, the talons start to come out and if you love yourself , quietly disconnect from the friendship because; as the jealousy festers longer, anything can happen to you ranging from but not restricted to, maligning your character, arranging rape for you, setting you up in the least expected places, getting fetish on you, , throwing acid or causing you other body harms and even killing you.
I’m friendly with my fellow women but I don’t have a best girl pal because; several times bitten, several times shy. Once I taste even the smallest tinge of jealousy, I gap you immediately
