Fahim Saleh, Gokada CEO found beheaded in New York apartment

Fahim Saleh, the entrepreneur who founded Gokada, a motorcycle-hailing company in Lagos, Nigeria has been murdered in his New York City apartment, United States of America.

The New York City Police (NYPD) said they found Mr Saleh's body dismembered with an electric saw. His head and limbs were removed, and the body parts were put in plastic bags and placed in different parts of his luxury apartment.

The police said they made the discovery on the seventh floor of an apartment building on E. Houston St on the Lower East side about 3:30 pm on Tuesday, after one of his siblings called 911 saying he had not seen all day.

Saleh was last seen on Monday afternoon around 1.40pm, as captured by a CCTV footage. He was said to have shared the building’s elevator with his alleged killer.

The footage is said to show the suspected murderer carrying a bag as he follows the victim into the elevator and attacks him as the lift goes up to the seventh floor.

The bag was found beside the dismembered body of the millionaire tech entrepreneur, but the police did not immediately open them to see if the body parts were inside.

Sergeant Carlos Nieves, NYPD spokesman, said all of the body parts were found at the scene but he declined to give specifics on where.

“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,” Nieves said.

Saleh, Bangladeshi-American, founded and invested in several transportation-related start-ups
