By Uche Madu, Onitsha
Bianca, wife of renown Igbo leader, late Odumegwu Ojukwu has said that Ebele Obiano the former Anambra State first lady was dead drunk when she slapped her.
She said she was surprised she could be drunk into stupor in the early hours of the day. Mrs Bianca Ojukwu and Ebele Obiano had a brawl during the inauguration of Prof Charles Soludo as the new Governor of Anambra State.
“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,” Bianca quipped.
Speaking on National TV on Friday Bianca said Ebele Obiano was noticeably absent as the inauguration ceremony started but arrived an hour later.
She said: “I did not pay any attention to her arrival. Surprisingly, she 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 said Obiano’s wife requested if she was at the inauguration to mock their last day in office
“I left her but 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 that point I stood up to defend myself and gave her a dirty slap to stop her from attacking me. As she made it towards me, I removed her wig, she then held on to her wig with her two hands and tried to take the wig away from me.
Bianca also revealed that while people tried to separate them, she was surprised by the stench of whisky in Ebelechukwu’s breath at such an early hour of the day.
