There was a dramatic moment at the inauguration of Prof Chukwuma Soludo as the governor of Anambra on Thursday when the wife of outgoing Gov. Willie Obiano, Ebelechukwu, slapped Mrs Bianca Ojukwu at the event.
According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the incident occurred immediately after Soludo took his oath of office.
It was learnt that 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 and slapped her.
Meanwhile, another account claimed that it was Mrs Ojukwu who slapped the wife of the former governor when the latter came to taunt her that she said that her husband won’t be governor but he served two terms. The angered Mrs Ojukwu was said to have dashed the former first lady a hot slap and the fracas ensued.
Indeed, it was Ebele Obiano that left her seat to Bianca's space where she received the hot slap and her Ichafu dragged out of her head.

The action drew the attention of security agents and some personalities who pulled Mrs Obiano off the hold of Bianca who was visibly shocked at the action.
Mrs Obiano was later taken away and shortly afterward, her husband left the venue since the incident happened after the new governor had been sworn in.
