Anambra Slapping Queens, We Must Appease The Gods, Perform Sacrifices To Cleanse The Land – Awka Monarch
Awka Monarch, Obi Austin Ndigwe, Eze Uzu III of Awka has said he’s under obligation to appease the gods and perform some sacrifices to cleanse the land following the fight between the widow of Nigeria-Biafra civil lord, Bianca Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and outgoing Governor’s wife, Ebelechukwu Obiano at the venue of the inauguration ceremony of Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo as the new governor of Anambra State on Thursday in Awka, the state capital.
The Awka Monarch made this known in a press release made available to newsmen on Friday in Awka.
According to the Monarch, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano desecrated the land and she must apologized to Bianca Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo, the Chief Judge of the state and the entire Igbo people within seven days or face serious consequences.
The Monarch statement reads thus:
She should also tender an unreserved apology to the new Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo for her disgraceful conduct during his inauguration. The same should go for the chief judge of the state who was conducting the swearing-in when she descended on Bianca.
This grave sin was committed in the land of Awka which is known for peace and unity.
Therefore, as the traditional ruler of the people and chief custodian of our culture, I am under obligation to perform some sacrifices to cleanse our land of this filth and pollution and to appease the gods.
It must be pointed out that Bianca was not at that ceremony as Bianca, but as a direct representative of our late father and leader, Chief Odumegwu Ojukwu, her late husband who pioneered APGA.
Therefore, Ebele’s action of casting aspersion on her is an affront on the entire Igbo people. It was indeed on Odumegwu Ojukwu and not on Bianca as a person. This is an insult to Igbo and it must not go unpunished.
It is on record that I took Obiano and his wife, Ebere to Bianca Ojukwu where they knelt down while seeking the party’s governorship ticket. Bianca endorsed Obiano and called on all APGA members including then Governor Peter Obi to support him.
Mrs Ebele Obiano has only seven days to apologise as demanded and directed or face serious consequences.
