Who exactly is Fahim Saleh? The man brutally murdered in his home

Police Tuesday said a man identified to be Fahim Saleh, the 33-year-old tech business person who established Gokada in Lagos, has been fiercely killed in his house in New York

New York Police Department said Saleh's body was discovered limbless and headless in a structure on E. Houston St. at Suffolk St. on the Lower East side, New York. Be that as it may, the dissected body parts were found at the location of the murder. 

He purchased the very home he was murdered in, in 2019 for $2.2 million. 

His mid section, head that has been severed, arms, and legs were visible on the scene.

Police were made aware of the unfortunate situation by the his sister who called 911 in the wake of finding the dismembered body of her brother in his home. 

His History

Aside from his business in Nigeria, Fahim, a Bentley University former student, helped to establish Pathao along with Hussain M Elius and Shifat Adnan in 2015.

Gokada was established in 2017. The company initially started in Yaba Axis of Lagos state, stretched out their activities to Victoria Island – Lekki Axis Lagos, Nigeria. 

The organization utilizes motor-bikes with an engine capacity of 200 cc or more, meeting the government standard for load-bearing on the major Lagos roads. 

In May 2019 Gokada was able to raise $5.4 million to develop its motor-bike travel business. Gokada added a luxurious yacht service to its bike business in June 2019. 

Their Administration

The administration requires a Gokada mobile application which riders must download to their iOS or Android, register on the application, enter a telephone number, input the area and request a pick up ride. Passengers would then be able to demand a ride from a close by rider.

When affirmed, the application shows the checked driver's name, photograph and bike ID, after which the driver will call to affirm the pick up and destination. All Gokada drivers are authorized vehicle operators. The Gokada ride accepts cash only.


It is a very unfortunate and terrible situation that this fine young man had to end like this. Indeed humans are desperately wicked.
