There was mild drama on Thursday during the inauguration of Prof Charles Soludo as Governor when Willie Obiano’s wife Ebelechukwu and Bianca Ojukwu engaged in a fight.
Obiano’s wife confronted Bianca, accusing her of not wanting the husband to be Governor while calling her a bitch.
In retaliation, Mrs Ojukwu stood up and slapped her leading to a fight.
The reason for the clash was not ascertained as of the time of filing this report.
But it was gathered that after Soludo was sworn in, Ebelechukwu walked to where Bianca was seated and immediately, both women engaged themselves in a fisticuff. The unfortunate spectacle 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.
There was a temporary commotion at the venue as guests ran helter-skelter before normalcy was restored and Obiano’s wife was moved out of the venue.
Professor Soludo, though expressed worry over the incident, concentrated on his signing of the documents before the state Chief Judge of the state, Justice Onochie Anyachebelu.
And while beginning his speech, he said: “Those who also want to leave can as well do so.
“The Anambra we are talking about is a place of law and order.
At the time he was speaking, former Governor Obiano and his wife had left the scene.
