Widow of the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, Bianca, has said that former First Lady of Anambra State, Ebele Obiano, was “clearly intoxicated” when the latter verbally attacked her at the inauguration of Chukwuma Soludo as governor of the state on Thursday.
Bianca made this known in a statement on Friday, explaining that she slapped Ebele because she attempted to remove her (Bianca’s) headtie, an act she considered “a sacrilege to a titled matriarch such as myself in Igbo culture”.
“What struck me through the whole episode was the fact that she was clearly intoxicated. I was stunned by the stench of whisky in her breath at such an early hour of the day,” Bianca noted.
