Hawa Koomson fired a gun, but Police detains Naa Koryoo over name spelling

Comrades, it is very clear that the -controlled Police service has no reasonable or justifiable cause to be detaining the Parliamentary Candidate for the Constituency.

The claim of a discrepancy in her first name is totally false.

Attached is a picture of the PC's which bears the name “Phillis Okunor”.

Also attached is a soft copy of her campaign poster, which bears the same name “Phillis Naa Koryoo Okunor”.

Also, attached are pictures of the license, permit and other documents covering the gun that was found in her car, which all bear the name “Phillis Naa Koryoo Okunor” (save that on the license the last letter “o” of her middle name “Koryoo” was omitted by the police officer who filled it”.)

What then is Naa Koryoo's crime? Is it now a crime to procure and register/license a gun in your name for personal protection? A gun she has not fired at anybody?

What did the NPP-controlled police do in the case of , who actually fired a gun at a voter registration center?

This same Hawa Koomson has threatened Naa Koryoo at gun point on four (4) different occasions, according to her lawyers. This is why she was compelled to buy and register a gun in her name for her protection.

What a load of nonsense from the Dampare-led Police. Is this the transformation of the that IGP Dampare promised Ghanaians – that a Parliamentary Candidate of the NDC will be detained overnight by the Police for a reason as flimsy and trivial as this?

The leadership of the NPP-controlled Police must bow down their heads in shame for allowing themselves to be used by the despotic /Bawumia/NPP government against innocent civilians.

We in the NDC will not be intimidated or cowered by this disgraceful and oppressive conduct of the Police. The demand for the release of Phillis Naa Koryoo Okunor continues today.
