Osman Morote Barrionuevo known with the alias of comrade Nicolas was one of Efrain Morote's sons. At one point in his life, he became the Shining Path's second-in-command. His two siblings, Arturo and Katia, also became members of the Shining Path, a Maoist insurgency in Peru that lauched the internal conflict in Peru.

He was arrested by the Peruvian police on June 11, 1988, on terrorism charges, and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. In March 1992 he appealed to the Supreme Court of Peru and his sentence was reduced to 15 years. The same year, President Alberto Fujimori's regime opened a new trial and Morote was sentenced to life in prison. A new trial started in June 2003.
