    Vicenza

    One was bitten by a Nigerian who wanted to avoid police inspection. About thirty immigrants rushed to the aid of the African, threatening the agents, Italian daily Il Giornale reported.

    The act of cannibalism occured in Campo Marzo in Vicenza, one of the city areas considered to be the greatest crime risk. During a simple identification check, two local police officers were attacked and injured by a biting Nigerian who refused to provide documents.

    As if that were not enough, the situation further degenerated when about thirty enraged immigrants arrived on the scene and started threatening the police in an attempt to guarantee their stay the EU.

    According to a first reconstruction of the facts, the foreigner was approached by three military officers serving in the city park who had asked him for his documents. The immigrant, however, refused to provide any, which gave way to an animated discussion.

    In an attempt to keep the situation under control, the military officers asked for reinforcements and called a local police patrol to the scene. Upon arrival of the latter, the migrants became enraged, and “in the grip of madness” assaulted the agents with extreme violence, the accused even tearing into one agent with his teeth.

    The already very tense situation was further overheated when dozens of other immigrants stationed in the park, came to help their friend by surrounding the police.

    The scene sparked panic in the whole area so that passers-by, fearing the worst, ran away. Only the arrival on the spot of other policemen and a patrol of the carabinieri allowed the restoration of calm.

    Thus the attacker was finally arrested. Subsequent investigations showed that the detainee is a 21-year-old Nigerian asylum seeker in Italy who had gained entry into the country thanks to a permit for humanitarian reasons.

    After the usual procedures, the suspect was transferred to the local police headquarters, awaiting his trial scheduled for this week.

    The two agents, on the other hand, had to be rescued and transported to the San Bortolo hospital in Vicenza to be treated. One agent suffered a serious bite wound and medical staff reported a fracture to his middle finger.

    For this reason, the policeman had to undergo surgery. His colleague was treated and discharged with a two-day prognosis.

    The Nigerian, Cletus Solomon, had bitten a piece of flesh off the finger of the officer and chewed it.

    After an emergency operation, the injured agent will be monitored for 30 days and will only partially recover the use of his hand after long and painful post-operative therapy.

    The Nigerian had stayed in Italy with a humanitarian residence permit, the one abolished by the Salvini decree that the left had invented to take in fake “refugees”. He faced charges of violence, resistance and injury to a public official.

    But the leftist magistrate pardoned the illegal cannibal last Wednesday, handing down only an eight-month suspended sentence, arguing that he had a “clean record”.

    Interior Minister Matteo Salvini expressed his solidarity with the injured officer. “This ‘gentleman’ has used up his ‘humanitarian protection’ and has filed for renewal. We are working for his immediate expulsion!” Salvini tweeted.
