Aside directing the sureties to submit their three years tax clearance certificate, the court, barred the defendants from embarking on any form of protest, pending the determination of the seven-count charge the Federal Government preferred against them.
Justice Ojukwu further ordered Sowore to surrender his international passport to the Deputy Chief Registrar of the court, warning that he should not travel outside the country without permission.
