Police Tuesday said a man believed to be Fahim Saleh, the 33-year-old tech entrepreneur who founded Gokada in Lagos, has been brutally murdered in his condo in New York.
New York Police Department said Saleh’s corpse was found limbless and headless in a building on E. Houston St. at Suffolk St. on the Lower East side, New York. But the dismembered body parts were found at the scene of the murder.
He bought the condo in 2019 for $2.2 million, New York Post reported on Tuesday.
“We have a torso, a head that’s been removed, arms, and legs. Everything is still on the scene. We don’t have a motive,” NYPD spokesman Sgt. Carlos Nieves said.
Police were alerted to the crime by the victim’s sister who called 911 after discovering the corpse of her brother in his home.
