The New York City police arrested the personal assistant to Fahim Saleh who was brutally murdered in his apartment in the US.
Saleh’s personal/executive assistant, Tyrese Devon Haspil, 21, was arrested early Friday morning and is expected to be charged with second degree murder, among other crimes, as detectives believe that he killed his boss, Saleh.

Instead of reporting Haspil to the authorities after discovering the theft of tens of thousand of dollars, Saleh reportedly offered his assistant a type of repayment plan to return the money.
Report says that investigators believe that Saleh was stabbed to death on Monday, after being immobilized with a taser. Also, th police believe the killer returned to Saleh’s apartment on Tuesday to dismember the body in order to cover up the murder, however, there was an interruption; victim’s sister buzzed up to the apartment then, he was forced to flee. Saleh’ sister was the one who found the body.
Fahim Saleh, 33, was a tech entrepreneur and CEO of ride sharing apps in Bangladesh and Nigeria. Gokada, a motorcycle ride-hailing app based in Lagos, Nigeria and co-founded by Saleh, reportedly raised $5.3M in venture capital in 2019.
