The cause of the squabble between Ebelechukwu Obiano, wife of immediate past governor of Anambra State and Bianca Ojukwu, widow of late Biafran warlord at the inauguration of Governor Charles Soludo has been unearthed.
While the inauguration of Mr Soludo was ongoing, Mrs Obiano was reported to have slapped Mrs Ojukwu but information at the disposal of TODAY POLITICS showed the widow of the late warlord started the physical attack while the ex-governor’s wife initiated the verbal attack that triggered reaction.
Mrs Obiano, our source said, arrived at the low-key event which was ongoing at the government house. She proceeded to seat beside her husband, Willie Obiano, when she sighted Mrs Ojukwu at the venue.
Facing the widow she approached, the outgoing governor’s wife mocked her saying; “You (Bianca) said we’re not going to be Governor, you bitch.”
The enraged widow was said to have stood up and slapped Mrs Obiano who then held her hair and cloth before the intervention of security agencies.
While the scuffle lasted, Messrs Obiano, Soludo and Senator Uche Ekwunife among others watched in astonishment.
