There was drama at the inauguration of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo as the governor of Anambra State, when Mrs Bianca Ojukwu slapped Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano, wife of outgoing governor, Willie Obiano, at the event.

According to News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, dignitaries including Ex Gov. Obiano were already seated when Mrs Obiano stepped in and moved to the front row where the widow of Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu was seated.

In the video, which has since gone viral, the wife of the former governor is seen walking to Mrs Ojukwu and making gestures while talking to her. Mrs Bianca Ojukwu then gets up and delivers the controversial slap on the face of Mrs Obiano.
Eyewitnesses have said Mrs. Obiano said things that taunted Mrs. Ojukwu and subsequently led to the slap.

Mrs. Obiano was heard calling Mrs. Bianca ”ash*wo” after security agents and some personalities had pulled Mrs Obiano off the hold of Bianca. This has enraged many people online and garnered reactions with many people condemning the behaviour of Mrs. Obiano, while applauding Mrs Ojukwu:

Mrs Obiano was later taken away from the venue of the inauguration, and shortly afterwards, her husband left the venue since the incident happened after the new governor had been sworn in.
