Drama ensued on Thursday at the inauguration of Chukwuma Soludo as the governor of Anambra when wife of outgoing Governor Willie Obiano, Ebelechukwu, slapped Bianca Ojukwu at the event.

The incident occurred immediately after Mr Soludo took his oath of office.

Dignitaries were already seated when Mrs Obiano stepped in and moved to the front row where the widow of Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu was seated and reportedly slapped her.

The action drew the attention of security agents and some personalities who pulled Mrs Obiano off the hold of Ms Ojukwu who was visibly shocked by the assault.

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