A Nigerian activist has called for the arrest of the wife of outgoing Governor of Anambra State, Ebelechukwu Obiano and widow of the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, Bianca for fighting during Governor Charles Soludo's swearing-in ceremony today.
Activist Deji Adeyanju of Concerned Nigerians who made the call onThursday said the women acted like thugs.
Adeyanju also said the two women should be arrested by the police for breach of public peace, noting that both Bianca and Ebelechukwu set a bad precedent for young ladies present at the event.
The activist spoke in a chat with our correspondent while reacting to the clash of the two women at the Government House, Agu-Awka, Awka, the state capital.
He said, “The police should arrest and charge the two women for disturbance of public peace. They are thugs. What has happened is a bad precedent for young women. It is unfortunate that these are the people we have up there. The loss of values is so obvious. It is sad.”
When contacted on whether the police would invite both women on the account of disturbance of public peace, the spokesman for the police in Anambra, Ikenga Tochukwu, told our correspondent to send him a text message. The PPRO was yet to reply to the text message sent to him as of press time.
We reported that the two long-feuding women locked horns at the event on Thursday and exchanged slaps before cameras. The development made the outgoing governor, Willie and his wife to abruptly leave the venue of the swearing-in ceremony of Soludo.
