Fighting Ojukwu’s Wife, Disgrace to Ndigbo, Bishop Onuoha Slams Obiano’s Wife, Umuahia – Renowned southeast cleric, Bishop Sunday Onuoha of the Methodist Church, has expressed fury over the recent conduct of Ebelechukwu, wife of the immediate-past governor of Anambra state, Willie Obiano.


Ebelechukwu had confronted Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, widow of the late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, at the inauguration ceremony of Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo in Awka, the Anambra state capital.

Speaking with Vanguard newspaper from his base in Umuahia, Bishop Onuoha described the action of former Anambra First Lady as an embarrassment to Ndigbo.
