"The father of Bianca Chief C. C. Onoh was a former Governor of old Anambra State who achieved so much for his people.
“Who is Mrs Obiano’s father or parents? They are unknown and remain unknown.
“There is no right-thinking person in his or her normal senses that will act what Mrs Obiano acted in an event graced by highly respected Igbo and non-Igbo personalities.
“Mrs Obiano has desecrated the temple and honour of the entire Igbo nation and she has to be disciplined in accordance with the offence she has committed.
“We demand the immediate arrest and prosecution of Mrs Obiano by security agencies.
“As youth leaders of the entire Igbo nation, we cannot and will not accept or play down on such great insult on the wife of our great leader Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu.
“Mrs Obiano has purchased some goods and those goods she bought have to be supplied to her in full without removing any item from the goods she bought.
“We, therefore, declare Mrs Obiano the wife of former governor of Anambra State Mr. Willie Obiano persona non grata in Igboland for desecrating Alaigbo.
“The order has been given and it must be strictly adhered to.”
