Reports just reaching us now has confirmed that the founder and CEO of Gokada, Fahim Saleh has been Brutally Murdered.

Fahim Saleh, the owner of motorcycle-hailing company ‘Gokada’ and co-founder of ride-sharing venture Pathao has been found dead in his New York apartment.

NY police recovered the body from a building in the Lower East Side around 3:30pm local time, according to New York Daily News.

Beside the limbless, headless torso of the millionaire tech entrepreneur, there was an electric saw, police said.

The apartment was owned by the deceased and was recently purchased for $2.25 million.

The alarm was raised after one of Saleh’s siblings became concerned after not hearing from him for a day.

She went to the seventh-floor unit to check on her brother only to find him brutally murdered, reports Daily Mail Online.

The electric saw used to cut up the body was still plugged in. The body parts reportedly had been sorted into different plastic bags.

An elevator surveillance camera may have caught the victim’s last moments, sources said. It shows the victim getting into the elevator on Monday, followed quickly by a second man, dressed in a suit, wearing gloves, a hat and a mask over his face.

As soon as he walked out into his home, he fell to the floor after either likely being shot or stunned.

The police suspect that the murder was carried out by a professional.

Saleh’s LinkedIn profile reveals how he, a former website developer, became a venture capitalist.

He has also described his history as an entrepreneur in a series of posts on Medium.com. He got his start creating a prank calling website, then moved on to create Pathao, one of the most successful ride-sharing ventures in Bangladesh, around 2016.

Most recently, he started Gokada, a motorcycle ride-sharing company in Lagos, Nigeria, but the company faced setbacks and mass layoffs after Lagos banned companies like his in January.

“We are shocked and saddened to hear the reports of the death of Fahim Saleh, one of the founding members of the Pathao team,” said Sayeda Nabila Mahabub, director (marketing and public relations) at Pathao.

“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,” she added.

All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Bola Tinubu, has paid a solidarity visit to the governor of Lagos state, Babjide Sanwo-Olu, ending the speculation that he travelled out of the country.

Tinubu’s visit to Sanwo-Olu came on Saturday, October 24, at the Marina State House amid a deluge of tragedies occasioned by wanton of destruction in the state by hoodlums. Addressing journalists, the APC leader expressed displeasure with how EndSARS protest transcended into violence that led to the vandalisation of the government properties and private facilities. Clearing the air on the Lekki shooting, Tinubu said his visit to the governor was to ask him if he ordered the operatives of the Nigerian Army to unleash terror on peaceful protest. The APC national leader also debunked the circulation that he was in France during the bedlam, saying it was fake news. “I didn’t go nowhere; I’m a Lagosian and I still hold the title of Asiwaju of Lagos and I am still a Jagaban.

“Whatever they think. Fake news is all over the place. They say Seyi my son was kidnapped and was chased but look at him. I didn’t pay a penny to bring him here.” Earlier, Tinubu denied having a hand in the killing of some EndSARS protesters at Lekki tollgate, saying he would never be part of any carnage. In a related development, Governor Sanwo-Olu has lifted the lids on the alleged removal of the CCTV camera prior to the toll gate incident. Speaking on Arise TV on Thursday, October 22, the Lagos state governor stated that “nobody ordered” the removal of the camera and turning off the light contrary to the circulation on the social media.

Sanwo-Olu said there was the security of LCC on the ground and added that what looked like a camera are “necessary installation” removed due to 24-hour curfew imposed on the state over repeated attacks of hoodlums.
