On March 17, 2022, Bianca Ojukwu, the widow of late Biafran President Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, made the headlines. This is coming after she spun a mild drama with the outgoing first lady of Anambra State, Ebele Obiano, during the swearing-in ceremony for the new governor, Charles Soludo. Mrs Obiano, who came late to the ceremony, had walked up to an already seated Bianca to question her attendance of the event and call her names; as you know what she got in return was a farewell slap.
It’s no secret that the Obianos and Bianca have been at loggerheads for a while now, but no one saw the farewell slap coming. Regardless, many people have been hailing the widow of the late Biafran warlord for resetting the Medulla Oblongata of the ex-first lady while praising her for maintaining beauty and elegance even when provocated. Despite being the recipient of the mind-resetting slap, the Obi of Awka, Eze Uzu III, described Obiano’s wife’s conduct as shameful and gave her seven days to apologise to Bianca publicly. Defending her actions later, the 53-year-old ex-beauty queen said Mrs Obiano came to her seat to taunt and verbally assault her unprovoked. Still, she completely ignored her until she attempted to remove her head-tie, which is an abomination to a titled matriarch in Igbo Culture.
The former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain said she gave her the dirty slap in self-defence while insinuating that the ex-first lady acted under the influence of alcohol owing to the stench of whiskey oozing from her. Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Bianca Ojukwu would make headlines. The mother of three who is ageing gracefully is known for spinning controversies even from a young age. While some can be called trivial, some are no doubt iconic. So, sit back as we go over the 5 Iconic times Bianca made the headlines. #BiancaOjukuw #BiancaOjukwulife #BiancaOjukwuRelationships
