Bianca, the widow of Biafra warlord, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, has said that Ebelechukwu, the wife of the immediate past Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, was drunk when she attacked her at the inauguration of Professor Charles Soludo as Anambra State Governor.
Bianca spoke on Friday following the slap she dished to Ebelechukwu at the inauguration ceremony on Thursday in Awka.
She specifically said Ebelechukwu was smelling of whisky at the event, which commenced at about 9am on Thursday.
She told Arise TV: “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 head tie.
“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 then 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 (All Progressives Grand Alliance) Chairman, Victor 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.”
