Police Tuesday said a man believed to be Fahim Saleh, the 33-year-old tech entrepreneur who founded Gokada in Lagos, has been brutally murdered in his condo in New York.
New York Police Department said Saleh’s corpse was found limbless and headless in a building on E. Houston St. at Suffolk St. on the Lower East side, New York. But the dismembered body parts were found at the scene of the murder.
He bought the condo in 2019 for $2.2 million, New York Post reported on Tuesday.
“We have a torso, a head that’s been removed, arms, and legs. Everything is still on the scene. We don’t have a motive,” NYPD spokesman Sgt. Carlos Nieves said.
Police were alerted to the crime by the victim’s sister who called 911 after discovering the corpse of her brother in his home.
Apart from his business in Nigeria, Fahim, a Bentley University alumnus, co-founded Pathao together with Hussain M Elius and Shifat Adnan in 2015.
Gokada was founded in 2017 by Nigerian entrepreneurs. The service was launched originally and started operations in Yaba Axis of Lagos state and has extended their operations to Victoria Island – Lekki Axis Lagos, Nigeria.
The company uses bikes with engine capacities of 200 cc and above meeting government standards for load-bearing on major Lagos roads.
In February 2019, the company launched a new headquarters.
In May 2019 Gokada raised $5.4 million in series A to grow its two-wheel transit business.
Gokada added luxury yacht service to its bike services in June 2019.
