Nigerian woman wounded in Italy racist attack
London, Feb. 4, 2018 (AltAfrika)-A Nigerian woman shot by an Italian right-wing extremist during a drive-by rampage says she no longer feels free to walk around the city “with peace of mind” after the attack.
The 29-year-old, identified only as Jennifer, told the daily La Stampa that “I never hurt anyone. I was talking and laughing with three other people” when she was struck by the bullet.
Her boyfriend told La Repubblica they were waiting at a bus station when he saw a man pointing something at them from a car. Ogie Igbinowania says “I gave Jennifer a push to get her out of the way and threw myself down. And I heard a shot: Boom”.
The suspect in Saturday’s shootings — identified by Carancini as Luca Traini, 28 — was apprehended by police while making a fascist salute in front of a monument to war victims. A gun was found in his car.
