Gokada CEO Fahim Saleh Brutally Murdered In US!
Fahim Saleh, the Chief Executive Owner, CEO, of GoKada and co-founder of transportation network company, Pathao has been found murdered in his apartment in New York, United States of America.
The millionaire Tech entrepreneur’s dismembered body was found around 3:30pm on Tuesday July 14 in his New York apartment which he bought last year for $2.25 million. According to the Police, the limbless, headless torso of the 33-year-old was found with an electric saw lying next to the remains.
New York Daily News revealed the police made the grisly discovery in a building on E Houston St at Suffolk St. on the Lower East side at about 3:30pm. NYPD officers visited the seventh-floor condo after the the deceased’s sister called 911 because she had not seen her brother in a day.
The deceased was last seen on surveillance footage on Monday afternoon around 1:40pm, when he entered his building’s elevator which opens right out to his seventh-floor apartment. The surveillance footage showed Fahim getting into the elevator, followed quickly by a second man dressed in a suit, wearing gloves, a hat and a mask over his face.
A police source said after he walked out onto his floor, he fell immediately possibly shot or stunned.
“The perp had a suitcase. He was very professional.”
Co-founder of Pathao, Hussain Elius, has reacted to the shocking incident, saying:
“We are shocked and saddened to hear the reports of the death of Fahim Saleh, one of the founding members of the Pathao team.
“Fahim believed in the potential for technology to transform lives in Bangladesh and beyond. He saw the promise in us, when all we had was a common purpose and a shared vision. He was, and will forever remain, an incredible inspiration for Pathao and our entire ecosystem.”
Fahim Saleh started Gokada, a motorcycle ride-sharing company in Lagos, but the company faced setbacks and mass layoffs after Lagos banned commercial motorcycles (Okada) from operating, in January 2020.
