“Why should a wife of the great Ikemba be so proud of her dastardly action when she disrespected Ndigbo and Ndigbo’s friends to the point of celebrating the incident in a live TV interview? No. Something is seriously wrong.

“If Bianca has a modicum of decorum and decency, she should come out openly and apologize to the former governors of Anambra, Osodieme, Soludo, Anambra and Nigeria state. Bianca’s action is a moral tragedy. We condemn her and ask the elders of Ndigbo to call her to order.
