Saleh, who co-founded Gokada in December 2017, posted the video on Feb. 2, a day after the Nigerian city of Lagos banned the motorcycle taxis on which the company’s business relied. Officials at the time pointed to “scary” numbers of fatal accidents as a reason for the ban, according to Reuters.
But Gokada’s drivers had a strong safety record with just 250 “mostly minor” accidents out of 350,000
The company raised over $5 million and hired over 800 drivers, but Gokada's business hit a snag earlier this year when Lagos banned commercial motorcycles in the city. Saleh filmed an impassioned plea on behalf of his employees to lift the ban. In the meantime, the company pivoted to delivery and was working toward launching a boat hailing service, he told CNN in February.

Most if not all remaining members had their employment terminated on 17 February 2017.
Authorities responded to the scene on the 7th floor at 365 East Houston St. just after 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
