Who was Fahim Saleh and what happened to him?

Saleh, who was 33, was the CEO and founder of Gokada, a motorcycle ridesharing app in Lagos, Nigeria.

Gokada raised $5.3million in venture capital one year ago, according to Tech Crunch.

He was born in Saudi Arabia but spent much of his childhood in Rochester, New York and Poughkeepsie, according to an online bio.

His parents were from Bangladesh.

Saleh’s decapitated and dismembered body was discovered in his luxury Manhattan apartment on Tuesday, and the crime scene made it seem like a “professional” job, according to The New York Post.

“This is ugly,” a police officer at the scene told The Post.

What did Fahim Saleh do for a living?

Saleh co-founded the Bangladesh ride-hailing company Pathao in 2015, and co-founded Gokada two years later, according to The Post.

“We used to call him the Elon Musk of the developing world. He was like the Energizer Bunny,” a pal told The Sun.

“His best friend in Dubai called me just sobbing on the phone, ‘They took my boy, they took my boy!’

Saleh was already making a six-figure profit from his tech ideas in high school, according to Radiche.

He said he started coming up with ideas when he was 15.

“I just sat at my house in my pajamas, created something, placed some ads and generated revenue,” he told Radiche in 2016.

Apart from his business in Nigeria, Fahim, a Bentley University alumnus, co-founded Pathao together with Hussain M Elius and Shifat Adnan in 2015.
