Naa Koryoo was held at the Cantonments Police Station on Friday, June 7, following an invitation, sparking outrage among NDC sympathizers who later gathered at the premises demanding her release.

Former President John Dramani Mahama condemned the detention, warning of potential political tensions. He called for Naa Koryoo’s immediate release, emphasizing that justice is essential for maintaining peace and stability in the nation.

The National Communications Officer for the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, criticized the leadership of the Ghana Police Service, alleging Naa Koryoo's arrest was orchestrated by personnel aligned with the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Naa Koryoo's assistant, Delali Sewarkpor, described the detention as political persecution by elements within the NPP.
