Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, has given an ultimatum to the wife of former Anambra Governor, Ebelechukwu Obiano following her fracas with Amb. Bianca Ojukwu, widow of late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
Recall that Naija News earlier reported that Bianca and Mrs Obiano got into a rift during the swearing in of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo as Anambra Governor.
Reacting to the incident, Ohanaeze called for an immediate apology to the entire Ndigbo from the Obiano family.
In a statement by its President-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, the group described the incident as an insult on the entire Igbo race and maintained that they would not stand still while anyone denigrate Ojukwu’s family.
He said: “we were shock-stricken to watch the trending video of an unprovoked attack on the wife of Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu by Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano.
“To say the least, this is the height of insult and embarrassment on the entire Igbo race, bearing in mind what the Ojukwu family represents for the entire Igboland.
“Consequently, we are charging the Obiano family to immediately offer an unreserved apology to the Igbo race or face dire consequences. They have an ultimatum to apologize for that barbaric action or have the entire Igbo youths to contend with.
“Having said this, I appeal to the Igbo youths, including Biafra agitators who are so provoked by Mrs. Obiano’s action, to calm down while we wait for the family.”
