Tyrese Haspil, 21 arrested over murder of GoKada founder, Fahim Saleh - ITREALMS

ITREALMS:
Mr Tyrese Haspil, 21 and the former Personal Assistant to the murdered Gokada founder and Chief Executive Officer, Fahim Saleh, has been arrested over his gruesome death that occurred early in the week, reports ITREALMS.

Gokada founder was reportedly killed and dismembered by an unknown assassin inside his Lower East Side apartment, in Manhattan, New York.

ITREALMS gathered that Haspil, was arrested earlier in the day by security operatives. He is expected to be charged with second-degree murder, and associated crimes.

This is coming a few days after Saleh’s sister found his dead body in his apartment and promptly alerted the police who swing into action by putting pieces together on the occasion leading to Saleh's death.

According to reports by The New York Times recalled that a man dressed in a black suit followed Saleh from his building’s elevator to his apartment, used a stun gun to immobilise him, followed by stabbing him to death, suspectedly on Monday.

ITREALMS gathered that the killer returned the next day to clean up the crime scene but was interrupted when Saleh’s sister, stopping by to check on him, buzzed his apartment.

"Police are of the opinion that the killer fled the apartment when Saleh’s sister arrived. When she entered, she found her brother’s body, decapitated and dismembered in trash bags. An electric saw was still plugged in nearby.

Also, detectives believed that the motive for the killing came from Saleh's discovery that his PA had stolen about tens of thousands of dollars from him, despite the fact that the deceased had not reported the crime and had set up what amounted to a repayment plan for him.

"The entrepreneur, 33, learned that Haspil allegedly stole $100,000 from him — but instead of reporting him out to authorities, he brokered a repayment plan with the younger man. But at some point, Haspil allegedly reneged on the deal.

"The killer used his employer’s credit card to pay for a car to a Home Depot, on West 23rd Street in Manhattan, to buy cleaning supplies to sanitise the crime scene.

"The killer returned to Saleh’s apartment the next day to dismember the body and clean up the crime scene."

Further, ITREALMS gathered that Mr. Saleh was born in Saudi Arabia to Bangladeshi parents who eventually settled near Poughkeepsie, N.Y., a small city on the Hudson River.
As at the time of his death, Mr. Saleh was the chief executive of Gokada and in February, Nigerian officials began enforcing a ban on motorcycle taxis in major commercial and residential parts of the country’s largest city, Lagos.
