According to a report by GHPage.com, the unidentified person was one of the 34 judges, comprising 22 from the lower courts and 12 from the High Courts, who lost their jobs as a result of an investigation.
The said investigation, tagged ‘Ghana In The Eyes of God’, revealed alleged practices of bribery and corruption in the judicial service.

It was conducted by the Anas Aremeyaw Anas-led Tiger PI, and resulted in punitive measures being taken with respect to the case.
This is because, they were captured on video allegedly receiving bribes from persons seeking to perverse judgement on their cases.
Kumah revealed that the affected judge resorted to the use of ‘trotro’ because the state seized his vehicle.
“I couldn’t believe it when I saw a high court judge I revered so well boarding a trotro; he was denied his entitlements as well,” John Kumah claimed on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo on Tuesday, June 5, 2018.
He therefore suggested that it is time Ghana considered the suggestions being given by the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong.
The MP is reported to have argued for the reinstatement of the affected judges, as they were set up by Anas and his team
He added that he is ready to prove to the whole world that the popular investigative journalist is corrupt.
