The Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission’s lead counsel, Essa Faal owns one of the most expensive cars in the country, but how much exactly does it cost?

The famous lawyer, whose clients include former Liberian president Charles Taylor and Saif Al-Islam, son of Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, is widely believed to be worth millions of dollars.

He recently added a new car to his growing supercar collection. Essa now owns a Genesis GV80 luxury SUV.

"It is a very expensive car that many Gambians can't afford. The Genesis GV80 cost over D3million dalasi in the USA," said a US-based Gambian car dealer.

The GV80 luxury SUV is the first-ever SUV from Genesis - a luxury vehicle division of the South Korean vehicle manufacturer Hyundai Motor Group.
