The late Ojukwu was married to former Miss Nigeria Bianca Onoh before he passed. The former leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra married the then 18-year-old Bianca in 1990 at the age of 60. The couple lived happily and had three kids before his passing.
Speaking on her marriage to Ojukwu, Bianca in an old interview said;
‘I think that I made the…in fact, I consider myself the luckiest woman in the world. I made a very good choice for a husband.
He was a very charismatic figure. He was a very enigmatic figure. But most of all, he was a very kind man and so many things endeared me to him. When I met him, he wasn’t particularly wealthy, but he was very proud to always tell you: ‘you know my father was a very rich man, I did not follow in his footsteps, I chose to be a revolutionary.’ But he would always make it clear: ‘you know I did not invent my circumstances, they fell on me and the life that I live today is a function of what I have had to inherit from the burden of history.
There were too many things about him but most of all his empathy. He was a man that you could only really predict in one thing and which was his total lack of tolerance for injustice and so many incidents would come to mind.”

“She is very humble, she appreciates the nature of my job and life that it is one that one comes back home late. Sometimes 3: 00 a.m., she understands my weaknesses, she is more or less the mother of the house, the one that has accepted to be the mother of my children.
I am happy that all my children are at home with her and accept her as their mother even though she is not old enough to be their mother. She has accepted to fill that gap.”

“I don’t think I can marry someone of my age because I’m very stubborn, My head is not down.

“I call my husband despite his age “baby”
“When I made up my mind to marry Mr.
Nwoko, I was more worried about what my family members would say and not what Nigerians had to say.
