Sometimes love happens in the strangest places and such is the case of the relationship between former beauty queen, Bianca Ojukwu, and late military officer and Biafra warlord, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
The love between the couple faced a lot of criticisms in the past because of their age difference but that did not stop them from legalizing their union.
Bianca and the late warlord got married in 1994 till his death in 2011. The light skinned beauty has taken to social media to celebrate her late husband and the father of her three children in a heart-warming post on social media.
The Nigerian diplomat took to Facebook to share photos from their wedding as she recounted the grand ceremony.
“ONCE UPON A TIME….MY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
“And it was indeed my fairytale. That’s me in the celestial white wedding dress carrying a bouquet made up of 24 of the most beautiful red roses I have ever seen. They were specially flown in from Jos that misty morning….12th November 1994.
“Today would have been our 24th wedding anniversary, though we had been together since 1989. It was a marriage which occurred and survived against all odds.
“The wedding ceremony was nothing short of superlative and took place at Our Lady Queen Of Nigeria Catholic Church Abuja while the wedding reception, the very first ever to be held at the Hilton, Abuja was a compendium of who is who, and a memorable extravaganza.
“The pre Wedding Party took place at the exotic Jabi Lake resort and had Afro juju sensation Sir Shina Peters on the bandstand……we jammed all night!
“so many years ago, and it feels just like yesterday…
“On this special day, though you are not here to remember with me, Dim Oma, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, I want to say THANK YOU…..
“THANK YOU, Beloved, for 21 years of immeasurable happiness;
“THANK YOU, Nnam Ukwu , for the priceless privilege of being your spouse, your Queen, and most of all,
“THANK YOU , for being such a great father to our wonderful children.
“Till we meet to part no more, May God continue to shower you with peace and joy in His paradise where All is perfect.
“Happy Anniversary, My Dearest….”
