Phillis Naa Koryoo Okunor, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Awutu Senya East, has been released after being detained for several hours at the Police CID Headquarters.

Naa Koryoo was detained at the Cantonments Police Station on Friday, June 7, following an invitation, which sparked anger among NDC supporters who gathered at the station demanding her release.

John Dramani Mahama, the NDC flagbearer, condemned the detention, warning that it could escalate political tensions. In a statement calling for Naa Koryoo’s release, the former president emphasised that justice is essential for maintaining peace and stability in the nation.

Sammy Gyamfi, the National Communications Officer for the NDC, criticised the Ghana Police Service’s leadership over the arrest, alleging that it was orchestrated by personnel influenced by the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Delali Sewarkpor, Naa Koryoo’s assistant, also described the detention as political persecution by elements within the NPP.

Supporters of the NDC were seen celebrating at the Cantonments Police Station around 12:10 pm on Saturday, marking Naa Koryoo’s release.

Sewarkpor confirmed to ChannelOne News that Naa Koryoo was released at approximately 11:30 am on Saturday following significant pressure from NDC leadership.
