In a statement, Mahama called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the government to prioritize justice to ensure peace and stability. He demanded the immediate release of Naa Koryoo.

Mahama expressed his disapproval of the Inspector General of Police George Dampare’s decision, which he attributes to orders from the National Security Advisor, Albert Kan Dapaah. He condemned the detention of Naa Koryoo, arguing there is no justification for holding the Parliamentary Candidate for the Awutu Senya East Constituency in police custody.

According to Mahama, this action, directed by the National Security Secretariat, is unnecessary and will only serve to heighten political tensions and disrupt national stability, especially with crucial elections approaching. He urged the Police Service and the IGP to resist being used in ways that could compromise the country’s peace.

Mahama appealed to the IGP, the Peace Council, the government, and the people of Ghana to acknowledge that justice is not only a moral obligation but also vital for maintaining peace and stability. He emphasized that the police should not be a tool for suppressing opposition and intimidating citizens, particularly in the lead-up to the 2024 elections.

He argued that the decision to detain Naa Koryoo after she had been granted bail seems to be an attempt to intimidate her in her campaign against the current Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Hawa Koomson, in the Awutu Senya East Constituency.


Mahama called for an immediate reconsideration of this action by the IGP and demanded Naa Koryoo’s release in the interest of justice and national stability.

In conclusion, Mahama stressed the importance of the police serving and protecting all citizens regardless of their political affiliations. He reiterated his call for justice with hashtags like #JusticeForNaaKoryoo and #FreeNaaKoryooNow.
