There was tension during a church service on Sunday at St. Thomas Catholic Church Uke, in Idemili North Local Government area of Anambra State.
It was gathered that the tension arose when a former lawmaker, Uche Ekwunife who was sacked from the senate in 2015 by Victor Umeh, arrived the church for a dedication performed by Bishop Dennis Isizoh where her ‘rival’ senator Victor Umeh was also present.
According to Charles Ifeanyi Obi, a media aide to senator Victor Umeh, Mrs. Uche Ekwunife who came late to the church dedication broke every protocol in spite of the advise by church wardens and struggled her way to the front seat only to sit close to where Senator Victor Umeh was already seated together with the host and fellow Catholic knights.
Mrs. Uche Ekwunife was said to have snubbed the senator who greeted others at the church.
It was alleged that before the thanksgiving procession, one Chief Nnamdi Okwuonu (Kwochaa) joined the procession with two cow ropes, Uche Ekwunife who was in the front rushed and dragged the rope from him but Kwochaa took back the rope from her and called Senator Victor Umeh to the front of the line.
Chief Okwuonu however handed the rope to Senator Victor Umeh and cautioned her not to touch cow rope again as it is abomination in Igbo land for a woman to do so.
