The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, the umbrella body of all youth groups in South-East geopolitical zone, has called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano, wife of the immediate-past Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, for slapping Mrs Bianca Ojukwu, widow of the late Biafra Warlord, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
On Thursday Night, former Governor Obiano’s wife slapped the former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain during the inauguration of Professor Chukwuma Soludo as the new Governor of Anambra State, at the Government House Awka.
COSEYL in a press statement jointly signed by its National President, Goodluck Ibem; and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Okey Nwaoru, strongly condemned the action which is described as ” abominable” in view of the pedigree of the Ojukwu family.
The statement reads; “It is the height of insult on the entire Igbo nation for Mrs Obiano to slap the wife of our revered and great Igbo Leader and Icon Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu.
” Mrs Obiano has exposed to the entire world that she is an untrained and uncouth low life.
“In all standards or standing, Mrs Obiano is unqualified and too low to stand before Mrs Bianca Ojukwu.
” The father of Bianca Chief C. C. Onoh was a former Governor of old Anambra State who achieved so much for his people.
“Who is Mrs Obiano’s father or parents? They are unknown and remain unknown.
“There is no right-thinking person in his or her normal senses that will act what Mrs Obiano acted in an event graced by highly respected Igbo and non-Igbo personalities.
“Mrs Obiano has desecrated the temple and honour of the entire Igbo nation and she has to be disciplined in accordance with the offence she has committed.
“We demand the immediate arrest and prosecution of Mrs Obiano by security agencies.”
Willie Obiano, the former governor of Anambra state, is reported to have attempted to utilise a court injunction to avoid being arrested at Lagos’ Murtala Muhammed International Airport.
Obiano had been on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC)watchlist since November 2021, and his term expired on Wednesday with the inauguration of Chukuwuma Soludo.
