[Video]: NDC supporters storm Cantonments Police Station over arrest of Awutu Senya East parliamentary candidate

Some members of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) are currently at the Cantonments Police Station protesting the arrest of their parliamentary candidate for Awutu Senya East Constituency, Phyllis Naa Koryoo Okunor.

The party claims Naa Koryoo, together with her driver and security guard, have been detained by the police under the instructions of Mavis Hawa Koomson, the incumbent MP for the constituency.

NDC National Communications Officer Sammy Gyamfi, in a brief statement, called on all party faithful to rally at the Cantonments Police Station, where Naa Koryoo and the others have been detained.

He said they should come and solidarize with her.

“All NDC supporters should join us at the Cantonments Police station for us to solidarity with our sister and demand her release now. Enough of the oppression and harassment of NDC figures by the …Police Service. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” he wrote in a statement dated June 7, 2024.

“Her offense is simply that a weapon (gun) was found in her car. The said weapon is registered in her name. All the necessary registration documents have been submitted to the Police.

Unlike, Hawa Koomson who in 2020 actually fired a gun at a registration center, Naa Koryoo has not fired any gun or weapon. Yet, the …Police service is hellbent on detaining her, ” Sammy Gyamfi added.

It would be recalled that Phyllis Naa Koryoo Okunor, along with Mustapha Mohammed and Abdul Aziz Musah, were arrested last week.

The trio was apprehended while travelling in a Honda CRV saloon car with registration number GX-2044-19 near the Electoral Commission (EC) Office at Ofaakor.

They were found in possession of a firearm which was linked to a stabbing incident involving Ato Koomson, the son of the current MP and the Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Mavis Hawa Koomson.

He was reportedly stabbed near the EC Office at Ofaakor in the Central Region. The police recovered a pump-action gun with four rounds of ammunition from the vehicle, as detailed in their statement.

Naa Koryoo, however, clarified that the said firearm is legally registered and that for fear of her life, “I have every right to protect myself because the happenings at Kasoa necessitate that I do so”.
