On behalf of the general public of Yikhum, Yikhum Village Council (YVC) has strongly condemned the January 27 incident at Doyang in Wokha in which one Mhabemo Mozhui, s/o Chanbemo Mozhui of Chudi village, had allegedly attempted to murder truck driver Nyanbemo Kithan and his friend Wochothung Odyuo while unloading some goods at Doyang en route to Wokha around 9.30 p.m. 

Asserting that the victims were innocent and were earning their livelihood by plying as truck driver and co-driver, YVC chairman Robin Kithan, assistant head GB Mhonlumo Odyuo and secretary Chumbemo Odyuo alleged that the accused attempted to murder the victims without any provocation. They accused Mozhui of pulling out a pistol and shooting on the ground before firing at the driver. Unfortunately the bullet hit the co-driver in the mouth who lost some teeth and was now undergoing medical treatment, they added. 
YVC alleged that Mozhui and his friends chased the victims with the intention of killing them, though the latter managed to escape. According to the council, this was not the first instance but one among many such acts in which the accused had manhandled and attempted on the lives of many innocent law-abiding citizens of the village without any reason.
Considering the seriousness of the case, YVC in its emergency general public meeting held on January 28 resolved to file and FIR immediately with the police seeking arrest of the culprit and associates within 48 hours of lodging of the complaint. 
The meeting also resolved to demand that the State government should bear medical expenses of the victims, warning that in the event of failure to nab the culprit within the stipulated time, the case would be pursue by the people, for which the turns of events might not be predicted.
YVC also appealed to all groups and organisations not to entertain “criminal-minded” person Mozhui in their fold, cautioning that it would not co-operate with any such group or organisation in the future. In a letter to the NSCN (I-M) kilo secretary, YVC demanded immediate termination of Mhabemo from active service of the NSCN (I-M) and to award stern action.
