There was drama at the inauguration of Prof Charles Soludo as Anambra State Governor, on Thursday at Awka, when wife of the outgoing Governor of the State, Wille Obiano, Ebelechukwu, slapped Nigeria’s former Ambassador to Spain, Mrs Bianca Ojukwu.
NAN reports that the incident occurred shortly after Soludo took his oath of office.
According to the report, guests including 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.
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 afterwards, her husband left the venue since the incident happened after the new governor had been sworn in.
Soludo was sworn in by the state Chief Judge, Justice Onochie Anyachebelu, at exactly 9:45 am, at the Anambra State Government House.
