Wife of former Anambra State Governor, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano, has denied any wrongdoing in the fight that ensued between her and Bianca Ojukwu, wife of the former Igbo warlord, Odumegwu Ikemba Ojukwu.
Recall that Mrs Ojukwu had slapped Ebelechukwu during the inauguration of Charles Soludo as the Governor of Anambra State last week, generating comments and reactions across the country.
Shortly after the incident, Obiano was picked up at the Lagos airport while trying to leave the country.
But the former First Lady has denied approaching Bianca for any trouble, stating that she only approached Bianca to exchange pleasantries, only to be slapped.
A statement by her spokesperson, Chidiebele Obika quoted her as saying that all she did was to approach the former beauty queen for their usual friendly banters only to be slapped and pushed by her.
She wondered what brought about “so much anger and hate” that would cause a former diplomat to be unable to, “manage herself in public.”
Mrs Obiano stated that in shock, she walked away without any form of retaliation.
