Lady Bianca Ojukwu, wife of former military head of the eastern region, Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu, has finally spoken out as she narrated what happened between her and Mrs Ebele Obiano.
It was reported that Ojukwu’s widow slapped the wife of outgoing governor, Mrs Ebele Obiano, during the swearing in and the inauguration ceremony of Prof CC Soludo, as the executive governor of Anambra state, on 17th March 2022
While there’s been a widespread of speculations as to what led to what, Lady Bianca has set the records straights ash narrates what happened between her and the former Anambra first-lady.
Speaking to AriseTV on Friday, Late Dim Ojukwu’s widow said
Ebele was noticeably absent as the inauguration ceremony started. Bianca said Ebele then arrived an hour later. I didn’t pay any attention to her arrival. Surprisingly, she then walked towards me and I thought she was coming to greet me.
Instead she verbally attacked me with her voice raised, taunting me and asking me what I was there to do, using unprintable, vile language. She asked if I had come to celebrate their last day in office but I ignored her completely. Then she kept on aggressively putting her hand on my shoulders and shouting.
While I ignored her verbal onslaught as advised by people sitting around me, I requested twice that she refrains from touching me with her hands.
She proceeded to do so yet again and tried to touch my head and remove my headtie. It was at this point I stood up to defend myself and gave her a dirty slap to stop her from attacking me.
As she made towards me, I den pulled away her wig, she then held on to her wig with her two hands and tried to take the wig away from me.
The former APGA chairman, Umeh, told her to leave me and told everyone to leave. I was stunned by the stench of whisky in her breath at such an early hour of the day.
How could the first lady be so drunk at that time? I stayed back to watch the ceremony till the end and left with my dignity intact”.
