Bianca Ojukwu spoke about her feud with Ebele Obiano, the outgoing first lady of Anambra state, at Chukwuma Charles Soludo’s swearing-in ceremony on Thursday, March 17.
On Thursday, the women grabbed headlines after a confrontation at the event. Bianca slapped Ebele in a video that went viral after the latter allegedly insulted her by leaving her seat.Bianca, the wife of late Chief Emeka Ojukwu, the immortal leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, said in an interview with Arise TV that Ebele verbally abused her, taunted her, and asked why she was at the ceremony using unprintable language.
“I was very unconcerned when she arrived. She then unexpectedly stepped towards me, and I mistook her for someone coming to meet me. Instead, she verbally assaulted me with her voice raised, insulting me and demanding what I was there to accomplish, using filthy language that could not be printed.She inquired if I had come to commemorate their last day in office, but I simply disregarded her. She then continued to place her hand on my shoulders and speak angrily.
While I ignored her verbal assault, as suggested by many around me, I requested twice that she not touch me with her hands. She did it again, this time attempting to touch my head and remove my headtie. I stepped up to defend myself at this point and gave her a filthy slap to stop her from hitting me. As she approached me, I pulled her wig away from her; she then grabbed her wig with both hands and tried to pull it away from me.
Umeh, the previous APGA chairman, instructed her to leave me alone and told everyone else to go as well. At such an early hour of the day, the stink of scotch in her breath astounded me. What made the first lady so inebriated at the time? “I stayed till the end to observe the ceremony and departed with my dignity intact,” Bianca stated.
