Aide: Naa Koryoo’s arrest is solely motivated by political persecution

The detention of Phillis Naa Koryoo Okunor, the Parliamentary Candidate for Awutu Senya East, by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has been characterised by Delali Sewarkpor, her personal assistant, as a political persecution by elements of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The personal assistant stated that the reason for Phillis Naa Koryoo Okunor’s imprisonment has not yet been disclosed to her followers or NDC sympathisers.

In an interview with Selorm Adonoo on Channel One TV’s The Big Issue monitored by, he said that the arrest of the PC was planned by the Interior Minister or the President.

“The only information we are getting is that it is an order from above for her to be arrested, and it is only the president or the Interior Minister that can call for her arrest, and this is purely political persecution.

“Since her arrest yesterday [Friday, June 7], we are yet to know the reason for her detention, except for some speculations. Yesterday, she was invited by the Kasoa Divisional Police Command when they found a gun in her car. They asked for the documents about the gun, and she produced all the documents to supportthe claim that she has the right to possess the gun. The gun was not even found by the police, but by some NPP thugs.”

Phillis Naa Koryoo Okunor is suspected of having been arrested in connection with her possession of a gun and the stabbing of the son of the Member of Parliament for Awutu Senya East Mavis Hawa Koomson on the dawn of Sunday, June 2, 2024.

Delali Sewarkpor, however, denied her involvement in the stabbing, stating that she was nowhere near the scene of the incident.

“She [Phillis Naa Koryoo Okunor] was not even at the scene when Hawa Koomson’s son was stabbed, and she only went to the police station in the company of Mustapha Gbande to help calm down tempers in the constituency.”
