The popular Gokada CEO, Fahim Saleh has been found dead in his house in Manhattan. Fahim Saleh, is a millionaire tech entrepreneur who moved into his $2 million Lower East Side apartment late last year.The alarm of his death was raised by one of Saleh’s sister on Tuesday, after she became concerned because she had not heard from him for a day, she was worried about her brother and had gone to the seventh floor unit to check on him, to her utmost shock, her brother’s body was found dismembered in his home
According to Daily Mail, the ugly incident was made public by his heartbroken sister and cops are now hunting for a professional killer who cut up the 33-year-old’s corpse with an electric saw. He had been cut up with a power saw, which was lying nearby and was still plugged in. Police sources said the body parts had been sorted into different plastic bag
Police believe they have surveillance footage of the suspect entering the building on Monday and then using the elevator.Video reportedly shows the gloved suspect wearing a hat and mask covering his face, and carrying a bag. He waited to enter the elevator with Saleh. ‘The perp had a suitcase. He was very professional,’ one police source told the Daily News.
Sources told the New York Post that as the pair rode up to the seventh floor apartment together, Saleh appeared puzzled. No sooner had he stepped out of the elevator – which opened directly into his home – the attack began. He fell to the floor after either likely being shot or stunned, the footage reportedly shows. The way he was killed has led cops to believe the murder was carried out by a professional.
Nigerians mourn Selah’s death, they believe he was a blessing and through many youth were inspired. His business in Nigeria created job opportunity for many and did not expect such great young Tech Entrepreneur should be dead and even killed brutally. Some Nigerians believe if he was still in Nigeria, he would not have died. Few of these reactions are:
Rest in peace Tolulope Arotile, and Fahim Saleh. I pray God gives your families and friends the courage to bear the loss.

The gruesome murder of Fahim Saleh is very disheartening…. I can remember vividly when he came to Nigeria to launch the Gokada….a very young innovative mind……
May his soul rest in peace and I pray they find out the culprit soon. pic.twitter.com/81h8TcgPsF

This life is just cruel. Fahim Saleh wasn't just murdered but was butchered. Must have taken a mastermind to execute such an act in that kind of building.

Rest in peace Fahim Saleh.
I'm writing this from a place of pain and loss. You were such an inspiration to me and my team.
Just last week Uzo and I were on a call with Fahim listening to an offer to absorb us into Gokada and a possible buy out. pic.twitter.com/z2nT8Wfnzi

Allow me lay this blame on LASG.
Had the Lagos State not disbanded the activities of Gokada in the state, I'm not sure that young CEO Fahim Saleh would have been hacked to death in NYC.
Perhaps, he would have still been in the country, creating opportunities.
