Although the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had kicked against the request, Justice Ekwo ordered the court's registrar to release Okorocha's traveling passport so that he can make the trip.

This favourable decision of the court came after an application by the senator's lawyer, Ola Olanipekun.

Giving the court his assurance, Olanipekun said his client will not abuse the order and would return to Nigeria for his trial.
