It was a drama filled day at the inauguration of Professor Chukwuma Soludo as the governor of Anambra when Mrs Bianca Ojukwu slapped outgoing Gov. Willie Obiano, Ebelechukwu, at the event.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent who was at the scene of the event reports that the incident occurred immediately after Soludo took his oath of office.
NAN stated that dignitaries including Ex-Gov Obiano were already seated when Mrs Obiano stepped in, walked to the front row where the widow of late Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu was seated and tried to engage her. Witnesses report that Obiano allegedly questioned Bianca for coming to the APGA event after insulting the party on social media. And Bianca responded with a slap.
The action drew the attention of security operatives and some personalities who pulled Mrs Obiano off the hold of Bianca, who had taken off her wig in anger.

Mrs Obiano was later taken away and shortly afterwards, her husband left the venue since the incident happened occurred after the Soludo had been sworn in.
