Read a report by an online media outfit, Homeland News about a similar incident that occurred in 2014…
Trouble started on Sunday the 16th of November, 2014, after the dedication of the child of the Anglican Bishop of Awka, His Lordship Most Rev. Dr. Ibezim at the cathedral of St. Faith, Awka.
The wife of the deputy Governor complained to the wife of Dr. Alex Ekwueme, being a mother of all, on how Ebere Obiano does not carry her along in whatever she does.
Desirous of brokering peace, Ekwueme’s Wife, Beatrice got audience with Mrs Obiano where she advised her on the need to carry everybody along, especially the wife of the deputy Governor.
At this point, Mrs Obiano flayed and claimed that the constitution recognizes her and not the Wife of the Deputy.
Immediately her Deputy shouted back, Mrs Obiano slapped her.
It took the intervention of security men to prevent the duo from physical fight.
In the quarrel, the wife of the Deputy Governor told her that she cannot kill her as she killed her maid, nor slap her as she usually slaps drivers.
As the exchange of foul words continued, Sir Victor Umeh took the deputy governor who was there away as he felt completely dejected.
Another story :
Three months ago, another story leaked of how the Mrs. Obiano engaged in an open quarrel with a member of the House of Representatives from the state, Uche Ekwunife.
If not for the intervention of the First Lady, Dr. Patience Goodluck, the member representing Anaocha, Dunukofia and Njikoka Federal Constituency of Anambra State, Hon Uche Ekwunife would have been attacked by the Wife of Anambra State Governor, Mrs Ebele Obiano in faraway Poland.
Both women were on the entourage of the First Lady to Poland.
Trouble started when on arrival with the First Lady, who was accompanied by Uche Ekwunife, Bola Shagaya and others, Ebele Obiano who was among those at the airport to receive the First Lady greeted every other person except Uche Ekwunife.
Later in the day, when Ebere Obiano came to see the First Lady, according to source with the First Lady, she again greeted everybody except Uche Ekwunife.
Those who had noticed the trend asked her why the childishness, pointing at Uche, she said, ”I do not greet prostitutes” to the astonishment of all those around.
Uche Ekwunife did not talk, according to our source, until Ebele Obiano told her that she will deal with her and make sure she crumbles all her businesses in Awka.
Enraged, Uche said, “I will not trade words with you. That you killed your husband’s first wife for him to marry you does not mean you can deal with other women. (Ebere Obiano use to be the secretary to Obiano until he lost the wife and married her); That you are dealing with your alcoholic husband does not mean you can deal with me.” Ekwunife said to Ebele Obiano.
Confused, Ebele Obiano said, “My husband drinks champagne not alcohol.” This provided a comic relief that set everybody laughing.
About to go physical, Dame Patience Jonathan intervened, joined by other women.
They lambasted Obiano’s wife for lack of manners and morals.
Patience Jonathan said, “Instead of you to go to Margaret Obi to teach you how to be a First Lady, I heard you no longer talk to her. This your behaviour today has confirmed all that is said about you. Please, if this is how you behave, never join me on any trip again, both within and outside the country.”
