Fahim Saleh, entrepreneur, founder, and CEO of Nigerian motorcycle ride-hailing startup Gokada is dead. Saleh was found in his New York apartment in what appears to be a gruesome murder.


The body was first found by Saleh’s sister who went to his apartment after she hadn’t seen him. She then called 911 to the luxurious Manhattan apartment after discovering the corpse of her brother in his home. Headless and limbless, his dismembered body was found next to an electric saw that is likely the weapon of murder.


The motive for the murder in the house which Saleh acquired for $2.25 million is still unknown. His friends believed that he was targeted, however, they say Saleh never acted bothered.


“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. Some parts of Saleh’s body were found cut up, placed into bags, and distributed about the apartment.


The NYPD has begun an investigation into the murder and reports say they are reviewing CCTV footage.  An elevator surveillance camera shows the 33-year-old getting into the elevator, followed quickly by a second man, wearing a suit, gloves, and a hat with a mask over his face.
