There was a theatre of the absurd on Thursday at the inauguration of Prof. Soludo as the governor-elect of Anambra State , when the wife of the outgoing Governor Willie Obiano, Ebelechukwu, received a rough slap from Bianca Ojukwu at the ceremony.
The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) correspondent who was at the scene of the ceremony reports that the incident happened immediately after Soludo took his oath of office.
NAN reports that dignitaries, including Ex-Governor 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 insulted her, called her a bitch after accusing the widow of her not wanting her husband to continue as Anambra State governor.
The gory scene 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 occurred after the new governor had been sworn in.
Meanwhile, Chukwuma Soludo, former Central Bank (CBN) governor has been sworn-in as the governor of Anambra State.
The swearing-in took place at the State government house on Thursday.
