Francis Emmanuel Francis almost lost his right eye on Tuesday following an attack on him by Muslim youths for not observing the Ramadan fast. … [H]e was spotted by some Muslim boys in the Sokoto Road area of Kakuri, at about 2.30pm, eating when others were supposed to be observing the fast. This drew the ire of the youth who started beating him.

Emmanuel, according to [an] eyewitness, was given the beating of his life and subsequently rushed to the St. Gerard Catholic Hospital, where he is currently receiving medical treatment. He [suffered] deep machete cuts on his head and other parts of his body during the incident.
