Rasta allegedly knocked down and killed three residents, including a second-year student at the University of Education Winneba, in Suhum.

When he appeared before the court he was granted bail which got the family of the deceased angry. They, therefore, mobilised some people to attack the judge.

The residents accused Rasta of deliberately knocking down people with his vehicle. Some of them believe that Rasta engages in the killings for ritual purposes.

They see him as a threat in the community hence the reason they wanted the judge to remand him in police custody.

The judge has since not reported to work, hours after fleeing the court.
