A viral video circulating online shows how a man alleged to be undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas was arrested by a mob in Accra.

The video shows a group of charged men manhandling a cornrow-wearing gentleman who they claim is an encroacher taking their lands at Tsado, a suburb of Accra near La-Trade fare.

Although the victim denied being Anas, the attackers insisted that it was him, saying that he has been using his name and influence to dupe them of lands duly registered in their names.

What is still not clear is if victim is truly the investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
