Reacting to the allegation of March 20 assault incident at Purana Bazar ‘B’ Village, the head GB Padumpukhuri village Dimapur, Kakuho Awomi has expressed shock over the charges made by Khetoi Village Union Dimapur (KVUD) president, Kiyevi Yepthomi and general secretary Ikavi Sumi wherein he was accused of forcibly entering the residence of KVUD member Hovukhu Awomi, damaged the property, assaulted the family members and “attempted to kill”.

In a rejoinder, head GB Padumpukhuri village Dimapur, Kakuho Awomi has clarified that his name has been dragged into the incident by referring as “Ex-GB, Padampuphuri, Dimapur”. He said that if the president and general secretary of KVUD were trying to incriminate his name, they ought to have ascertained the identity of those persons involved and properly verify the facts without taking sides and then only comment over the issue on merit without jumping the gun to make wild allegation in the print media.
Awomi also clarified that he was appointed as “Head G.B. of Padumpukhuri Village” vide Order No. GEN-1/2009-D/12857-60 on March 30, 2010 and is still serving as Hd. G.B. Padumpukhuri Village. 
Awomi said that the allegation was intended to cause damage to his reputation. “When in fact on the fateful day, at the time of the incident I was not even in the vicinity where the said incident occurred which can be supported by evidence, whereas an attempt made by the president and general secretary of KVUD to inflame the minds of people against me by tarnishing and diminishing my reputation and image amounts to defamation by libel and for which I am on the process to take legal course of action before the appropriate court of law”, he clarified. 
The head GB said that he was stunned when it was brought to his notice of an FIR being lodged against him over the said incident, thus realising the plot of some individuals with vested interest devising to associate him with the said incident. 
Awomi said he was required to take refuge of law to protect himself from egregious allegation and further committed full faith in the investigating agency for vindication.
