“I was stunned by the stench of whisky in her breath at such an early hour of the day. How could the First Lady be so drunk at that time? I stayed back to watch the ceremony till the end and left with my dignity intact”.

With the above statement, widow of the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, on Friday, narrated why she slapped the immediate past First Lady of Anambra State, Mrs. Ebele Obiano.

The drama happened on Thursday in Awka when former Governor Willie Obiano was handing over power to Governor Charles Soludo.

In a viral video, Ebere was seen going towards Bianca and when she got to her side, she said a few things. Bianca later got up and slapped her. 

Distinguished guests and some security agents immediately separated the combatants.

Speaking on Arise TV on Friday, Biance claimed that Ebele was drunk and came to abuse her, which prompted her own reaction.

She said: “I didn’t pay any attention to her arrival. Surprisingly, she then walked towards me and I thought she was coming to greet me. Instead, she verbally attacked me with her voice raised, taunting me and asking me what I was there to do, 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 on aggressively putting her hand on my shoulders and shouting.

“While I ignored her verbal onslaught as advised by people sitting around me, I requested twice that she refrained from touching me with her hands. She proceeded to do so yet again and tried to touch my head and remove my head tie. It was at this point 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 then held on to her wig with her two hands and tried to take the wig away from me.

“The former APGA chairman, Victor Umeh, told her to leave me and told everyone to leave”.
