The above photo of a young man identified simply as Emmanuel, who was left blinded in both eyes, has emerged on social media.
According to multiple online reports, a member of the victim's community identified as Wike Ugonna, allegedly attacked him with acid during a land dispute at their village in Atani in Ogbaru local government area of Anambra State on May 10th.
It was gathered that Emmanuel's family had approached Wike's family to use a part of a land they use for farming in their community but the Wike's family turned down their request. This created a friction between both families.
On the day of the attack, Emmanuel was said to be working on another person's farmland when Wike approached him and allegedly poured acid on him and also cut him with a machete.
