Juan Guaidó was on his way to a political rally Sunday when his vehicle was stopped on the highway by masked security forces, according to videos circulating on social media. Juan Guaidó is the head of Venezuela's parliament and says Maduro is an illegitimate usurper.

His wife, Fabiana Rosales, said on Twitter Mr Guaidó's whereabouts were unknown.

The Information Ministry did not immediately reply to a request for comment, Reuters news agency reported.

The event, which has not been confirmed by the government, comes just three days after President Nicolás Maduro began a new six year term that many in the global community consider illegitimate.

Guaido, a legislator from the hardline Popular Will opposition party, added that he would only take office with support of the armed forces.

Maduro was sworn in for a second term late last week.
