Phyllis Naa Koryoo Okunor, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for Awutu Senya East, has spoken out following her arrest and detention at the Cantonment Police station on June 7, 2024.

Her detention sparked outrage among NDC supporters, who described the incident as an abuse of power.

Speaking on Eye Witness News after her release, Naa Koryoo Okunor expressed her concerns about the treatment of ordinary Ghanaians by those in positions of power.

Naa Koryoo Okunor recounted her interactions with fellow inmates and highlighted the harsh realities faced by many detainees. She described the troubling conditions where individuals remain on remand for extended periods, often without a fair trial.

“I think we just live in a country where people are not being treated fairly and justly. Where I think that people use their political power to oppress the ordinary Ghanaian. I am not saying this because I have been in the picture. I am speaking on behalf of the many Ghanaians who have not been treated fairly. I slept in jail for let’s say 12 to 16 hours.

“I interacted with the inmates and it is a sad country where people will be on remand for two years, where people will be on remand for nine months, where people will be arrested because perhaps the boyfriend was arrested for stealing so the girlfriend becomes an accomplice and till date two years and more they are still sleeping in a cell.

“It is a sad country. If you don’t have a voice, you cannot speak for yourself. So I think that it is time that we all rise up against the injustice that is happening to the ordinary Ghanaian,” she stated.
