Ebele Obiano, wife of the immediate former governor of Anambra state, Willie Obiano, has given her account of what transpired between her and a former beauty queen, Bianca Ojokwu.
Both women were on Thursday last week, during the inauguration of newly elected Anambra state governor Charles Soludo, caught fighting on camera.
The incident caused Mr Soludo’s media aide, Joe Anatune, to issue a statement of apology on behalf of the newly sworn in governor to the Anambra people.
In a statement by her media aide, Chidiebele Obika, Mrs Obiano said she had approached Mrs Ojukwu for their usual friendly banter and was shocked when the wife to the late Biafran leader “slapped” and shoved her aside.
She claimed to have approached Mrs Ojukwu to ask about what she came to do at Soludo’s inauguration, having predicted that the ruling party in the state won’t win the November 2021 governorship, but got slapped.
Mrs Obiano said she wondered what could have caused so much anger and hate that a former diplomat could not manage herself in public.
Mrs Ojukwu had claimed she gave her attacker a dirty slap after Mrs Obiano used unprintable words against her personality.
