#EndSARS protesters on Sunday launched an online radio, called Soro Soke 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 handle 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.
