Bianca Ojukwu Reacts – Obiano’s Wife Was Drunk… I Gave Her A Dirty Slap
Binaca revealed Obiano’s wife smelled like alcohol when she came to attack her.

Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, the late Chief Chukwuemeka Ojukwu’s widow, has revealed what happened between her and former Anambra State First Lady, Ebelechukwu Obiano.
On Thursday, March 17, 2022, two prominent Anambra daughters engaged in a slap battle at the inauguration ceremony of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo as Governor.
The feud began almost immediately after Soludo took over the presidency from his predecessor, Willie Willie Obiano.
The incident elicited strong comments from Nigerians, particularly on social media.
Soludo has also apologised to the people of Anambra state and visitors who witnessed the ignominy, blaming it on a breakdown in communication caused by a personal dispute between the two.
Bianca also issued a statement on Friday, March 18, 2022, to clarify what happened at the event.
“As the inaugural ceremonies for Prof Charles Soludo and his deputy began and all guests were seated, the Former First Lady of Anambra State, Mrs Ebele Obiano, was noticeably absent. She then arrived some one-and-a-half hours later while the ceremony was on. I didn’t pay any particular attention to her arrival.”
“Surprisingly, she then walked towards me and I thought she was coming to greet me. Instead, when she got to where I was seated, she verbally attacked me with her voice raised, taunting me and asking me what I was there to do and 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 aggressively putting her hands on my shoulders and shouting. While I ignored her verbal onslaught, as advised by those sitting around me, I requested twice that she refrained from touching me with her hands.”
Bianca claimed that Ebelechukwu proceeded to abuse her and even pulled her head tie, which is considered a sacrilege in Igbo culture given her (Bianca’s) traditional status.
She claimed she climbed to her feet to protect herself and slapped the former First Lady in the face to immobilise her.
Bianca said “She proceeded to do so yet again and went further to grab at my head tie, which she attempted unsuccessfully to remove. This very act is considered a sacrilege to a titled matriarch such as myself in Igbo culture.
“It was at this point that 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 held on to her wig with her two hands and tried to take the wig away from me.
“The former APGA chairman, Umeh (Chief Victor Umeh), told her to leave me and told engaged APGA members that had gathered at the spot to lead her away, which they did and took her to the seat next to her husband Chief Willie Obiano who sat through the entire episode completely speechless.”
Bianca, on the other hand, suggested that Mrs Obiano was under the influence of alcohol, noting that she reeked of scotch when she came to attack her.
“What struck me through the whole episode was the fact that she was clearly intoxicated. I was stunned by the stench of whisky in her breath at such an early hour of the day. How could a first lady be so drunk and proceeded to turn up in that state at an Inauguration ceremony that began at 9 am?
“It is unfortunate that she threw all caution to the wind and imported this kind of melodrama to a state ceremony. This was highly embarrassing to the Governor who left the venue almost immediately, taking her along with him.
“Luckily, this did not disrupt the proceedings and I stayed back to witness the ceremony to the end after which we were treated to a sumptuous reception at the Government House.”
Meanwhile, Ebelechukwu’s spouse is being questioned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja.
Obiano was apprehended by EFCC operatives at Lagos’ Murtala Muhammed International Airport on Thursday night as he prepared to board a flight to Houston, Texas in the United States.
