Drama overtook the inauguration of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo as the governor of Anambra State on Thursday when Ebelechukwu, wife of Willie Obiano, his predecessor, slapped Bianca, late Dim Chukwueneka Ojukwu, at the event.
The incident reportedly occurred immediately after Soludo took his oath of office.
Dignitaries, including Obiano, were already seated when the two women got into the fray.
The action which drew the attention of security agents and some personalities while others scampered for safety not knowing exactly what was happening had some guests pull Obiano’s wife off Bianca amidst shout of “cut the camera, cut the camera”.
The action reportedly shocked Bianca Ojukwu, even as Ebelechukwu was taken away from the scene of the event, just as afterward, her husband left the venue.
The two women have reportedly been at loggerheads for years.
Soludo was sworn in by the state Chief Judge, Justice Onochie Anyachebelu, at exactly 9:45 am, at the Anambra State Government House
