Fahim Saleh, the owner of the motorcycle company, ‘GoKada’ and co-founder of ride-sharing venture ‘Pathao’, has been found dead in his New York apartment.
The dismembered body of the deceased was found by NYPD officials in a building on E Houston at Suffolk Street on the Lower Eastside at about 3:30 pm on Tuesday.
The officers said they went there after the deceased’s sister called 911 because she had not seen her brother in a day. The Officers also said the limbless, headless torso of the 33-year-old was found with an electric saw lying next to the remains.
Hussain Elius, a ’Pathao’ Co-founder while reacting to his gruesome murder said he was shocked to hear of his demise.
”We are shocked and saddened to hear the reports of the death of Fahim Saleh, one of the founding members of the Pathao team.
“Fahim believed in the potential for technology to transform lives in Bangladesh and beyond.
“He saw the promise in us when all we had was a common purpose and a shared vision.
“He was, and will forever remain, an incredible inspiration for Pathao and our entire ecosystem,” he said.
Fahim started Gokada, a motorcycle ride-sharing company in Lagos, which faced setbacks and mass layoffs after Lagos banned commercial motorcycles (Okada) from operating, in January 2020. He also co-founded Pathao together with Hussain M Elius and Shifat Adnan in 2015.
We hope the NYPD officers are able to solve the mystery of his gruesome death, by finding the perpetrators of the barbaric act. Our prayers also go to the family of the deceased. May his soul rest in peace.
