#ENDSARS Protesters Launch Online Radio ‘Soro Soke’

#EndSARS protesters on Sunday (Today) launched an online radio, named ‘Soro Soke‘ as part of strategies devised to press home their demands even as the protests continue across the country. 

The Soro Soke radio has a bouquet of programmes aimed at educating and communicating with protesters and also coordinate activities nationwide.

Soro Soke radio which has gone live will also serve as a platform to report missing persons.

The mantra, Soro Soke, a Yoruba phrase which means ‘Speak Up,’ gained traction last week after protesters in Lagos told Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to ‘soro soke’ whilst addressing them.

Soro Soke radio has also opened a Twitter hand to serve as a link between listeners and the media outlet.

The #EndSARS protests calling for an end to police brutality; extrajudicial killings and scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) – a unit of the police force notorious for human rights abuse –  have continued for over 12 days.

Nigeria’s police chief, Mohammed Adamu, had on heels of the disbandment of SARS, announced a new tactical unit – Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) – to replace the scrapped arm of the force.
