Results released by the election committee showed that Mrs Obiano, who is popularly known as Osodieme, scored 152 votes, while Odili scored 120 votes. Two other aspirants, Mr Junior Onwuteaka and Mr Tony Nnacheta scored two votes each.

Violence had erupted at Otuocha Stadium in Anambra East Local Government Area on Saturday at the venue of the election, forcing the committee to move it to Sunday.

Mrs Obiano has been having a tough challenge over her aspiration, as two persons, said to have been made by her husband, had allegedly ganged up to stop her from picking the ticket.

Wife of the former governor will now square up with Princess Stella Oduah, a former Minister of Aviation and current senator of the zone in the general election next year.

In a related development, Popular businessman, Obi Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana, has congratulated his brother, Ikenna, who emerged as the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for Idemili North/South federal constituency in Anambra.

Obi Cubana, in a video he shared via his Instagram page, shared a video of his ecstatic brother jumping on him after his victory.
