The gruesome killing of Gokada founder and Chief Executive Officer, Fahim Saleh, was “financially motivated.”
One of the homicide officials from the New York Police Department investigating the murder said that the motive of Saleh’s killer appeared to be financial in nature.
Adding that the murder appeared to be the result of a bad business deal, according to WNBC.
Sources said the killing may have been a targeted hit, as investigators look into the victim’s business affairs for any possible motives or suspects.
“I think it was an overseas situation where they hired a hitman to do this and maybe the person is on a plane out of here,” a friend of Saleh told NBC New York. Detectives are said to be looking into that possibility.
