Oscar Pérez paints himself as a James Bond-cum-Rambo figure on social media.
Now the question is, who Oscar Pérez is and what is this fuss all about?
In a video posted by Oscar Pérez on his Instagram, where he confesses that he is part of a coalition of members of the security forces and their mission is "to serve our people."
However, President Nicolás Maduro has declared him a terrorist and accused him of attacking country's Supreme Court; he also accused him of stealing a military helicopter and dropped grenades on the court.
According to Pérez’s posts which he published on the day of the attack he made a statement calling people to rise up "to recuperate our beloved Venezuela".
He appeared flanked by four armed men while he read the message on camera. His other gunmen were standing to support him.
According to a report in BBC, Oscar Pérez was also a member of the forensic police force, known as the CICPC, for 15 years.
Pérez is not just a cop - he also worked as an actor and film producer in a Venezuelan film, ‘Suspended Death’ in 2015
Before the attack, he posted a picture which featured a glorified Jesus Christ surrounded by dozens of soldiers from different eras, with the title 'Peace is Coming'.
