On efforts to curb attacks on PDP members, especially the recent attack on Mr. Abia Onyike, he said, "What we are doing about it is that we are not relenting, we are trying to study it very well, PDP is not scared of anything or any Ebubeagu. We are to study the events and then we will approach it the way we think best and stop it.
