Team Gokada said in a statement earlier today that all its staff members are saddened about the very tragic and sudden death of the company’s founder and Chief Executive Officer, Fahim Saleh.

The brief statement, which was issued via the company’s official Twitter handle, also described Fahim as a great leader who was a positive light and a source of inspiration to everyone at Gokada.

The way forward: The statement further noted that while Fahim Saleh will be missed forever, the rest of the Gokada team and management will ensure that his vision lives on. To this end, changes to the company’s management will be communicated in due course.

“We are deeply saddened to inform you about the sudden and tragic loss of our founder and CEO, Fahim Saleh. Fahim was a great leader, inspiration and positive light for all of us. Our hearts go out to his friends, family and all those feeling the pain and heartbreak we are currently experiencing, here at Gokada.

“Fahim’s vision and belief in us will be with us forever, and we will miss him dearly. Thank you for understanding as we get through this. All updates and changes will be communicated with you, as it unfolds. Forever in our hearts,” the statement said.

The backstory: Fahim Saleh, whose decapitated and dismembered body was found by his sister in his New York City apartment, yesterday, came to Nigeria with an innovative idea that transformed the motorcycle transportation business in Africa’s biggest city.

Founded in 2018, Gokada was adjudged one of the most innovative startups in the country, even as it raised millions of dollars in funding. Fortunately or unfortunately, the venture’s plan was forced to change earlier this year when the Lagos State Government issued a directive banning commercial motorcycle in major parts of the Lagos Metropolitan area.

An earlier reports about Saleh’s murder detailed how CCTV cameras showed his alleged killer following him into his apartment. The two struggled at some point, as Saleh apparently tried to wrestle with his assailant.
Investigators now believe that the killer left the building through a service entrance, after killing and decapitating then dismembering the techpreneur with an electric saw which was later found at the scene of the crime.

Note that Saleh’s sister had gone to the apartment to check on him because she had tried abortively to contact him after one whole day.
