- Gokada founder, Fahim Saleh, was brutally murdered in his home in the US
- Fresh findings have shown that Saleh's death may be due to a failed financial deal with his killer
- An official of the New York Police Department said the tech guru's death may be financially motivated
Fahim Saleh, CEO of a Nigerian tech startup Gokada, died mysteriously in his apartment in New York and his death has been reported to be financially motivated.
Legit.ng recalls that the 33-year-old was dismembered and decapitated with his limbless, headless torso found inside his New York apartment on Tuesday afternoon, July 14, with an electric saw lying next to the remains.
The millionaire tech entrepreneur, who co-founded Lagos-based motorcycle-hailing company Gokada, is now said to have been probably cold-bloodedly murdered in a move that was financially motivated.
New York Police Department official, who spoke on the issue on Wednesday, July 15, claimed that Saleh was in trouble and his death may be due to failed financial deal with his murderer.
Saleh's killer was said to have busted into the tech guru's apartment dressed like a ninja and committed the atrocity.
"He was dressed like a ninja, full out, so you can’t even see his face," a source said.
"He clearly knew what he was doing. We think his intent was to get rid of the body parts and go back and clean it up and make it look like nothing happened. He left before he finished the job."
Police have now been seen at the front of the apartment where the crime was committed, with Saleh's death described as a great loss by his former associate Deji Oduntan.
"I am utterly shocked and deeply saddened by the news of Fahim's death. Fahim was passionate about building our Ecosystem and left an indelible mark in it," Oduntan said on Twitter on Wednesday.
