Following the incident that happened last week between the widow of the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Bianca and the immediate past first lady of Anambra State, Ebelechukwu Obiano at the inauguration of Anambra state Governor, Charles Soludo, Ebelechukwu has opened up her own version of the hi story.
According to her, she said that she had left her seat to greet Bianca, but what she received in return was a slap from the latter.
Speaking further, she stated that this particular attitude made her to wonder what could have brought about so much anger and hatred for a former diplomat to be unable to manage herself in public.
However, she made it clear that she didn’t bother returning the slap, rather she walked away in utter bewilderment.
Could this be true?, being that Bianca version of the story made it known that she, Ebelechukwu was intoxicated and only came to abuse her verbally while Ebelechukwu said, she only approached her for their usual friendly banters. As it stands now, we don’t know which version to believe.
Recall that there was a show of shame and undesirable distraction at the Government House, Awka during the inauguration of Professor Charles Soludo as governor of Anambra State last Thursday as the wife of the former governor of the state, Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano and wife of the late Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu exchanged fisticuffs at the middle of the swearing ceremony.
Soludo and his deputy, Dr. Onyekachukwu Ibezim had just taken the oath of office and Soludo was still signing the papers before the chief judge of the state, Justice Onochie Anyachebelu when Obiano’s wife arrived and went to where Bianca Ojukwu was seated.
In what people around initially took as a joke, Mrs. Obiano said to Bianca: “What are you doing here? You said we will never win the governorship and here you are.”
Instantly, Bianca slapped her and a fight ensured between them at the high table.
Security men and other people at the high table rushed and separated them and dragged Mrs. Obiano to where her husband, Willie Obiano was seating calmly.
As soon as Soludo finished signing the documents and came down and greeted the Obianos, the former governor and his wife departed from the ceremony. Bianca Ojukwu, however, stayed till the end of the ceremony.
Although Governor Soludo expressed worry over the incident, he did not show it.
Soludo’s media aide, Mr. Joe Anatune, thereafter issued a statement and apologized on behalf of his boss about the incident.
He said: “Governor Chukwuma Soludo hereby apologises to Anambra people, their friends and guests who attended his inauguration this morning for the breach of protocol.
Shortly after ex-Governor Obiano and his wife departed the scene, he was arrested by men of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and taken to Abuja where he is currently being detained.
