Recall that The Eastern Updates reported on March 17, the ‘slap’ saga between the erstwhile First Lady of the state, Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano, and Bianca Ojukwu, the widow of Ikemba Odumegwu Ojukwu of blessed memory on the inauguration of Professor Chukwuma Soludo as the Governor of Anambra State.
The Eastern Updates has recently and reliably obtained a much more vivid footage of what actually happened at the event.
The incident which had occurred shortly after Soludo took his oath of office, an eyewitness told Eastern Updates earlier was subsequently described as ‘despicable’ by many spectators at the event considering the prominence of the ladies involved.
Distinguished dignitaries, including Obiano, were already seated when Mrs. Obiano moved to the front row where the widow of Dim Ojukwu Ojukwu was seated, and uttered some words that Mrs. Ojukwu found extremely offensive before slapping her.
Several security agents and prominent personalities were attracted by the incident, who immediately separated the duo from what would have culminated into a more disgraceful physical combat
Mrs. Obiano was quietly taken away from the venue, and soon thereafter, her husband left the event, since the incident happened after the new governor was sworn in.
