The wife of former Governor of Anambra State, Ebelechukwu Obiano has broken her silence on the slapping incident involving her and Bianca, wife of late Biafran warlord, Chukwuemeka Odemegwu Ojukwu at the inauguration of Prof. Charles Soludo as new Governor of Anambra State at the State House, Awka last Thursday.
As seen in viral videos of the event, the former First Lady had walked majestically from her seat to where Bianca was seated where she was seen speaking some words that obviously got Bianca angry.
Bianca had in reaction got up from seat and slapped Ebelechukwu.
The shocked former First Lady wanted to react, but was pulled away from Bianca.
However, Ebelechukwu said she had left her seat to greet Bianca, but the latter reacted to her greeting with a slap.
According to a statement by her spokesperson, Chidiebele Obika, the former governor’s wife said, all she did was approach the former beauty queen for their usual friendly banters only to be slapped and pushed by her.
She wondered what brought about “so much anger and hate” that would cause a former diplomat to be unable to “manage herself in public”.
Mrs. Obiano stated that she didn’t bother returning the slap, instead, she walked away in utter bewilderment.
