#EndSARS: Protesters Launch Online Radio ‘Soro Soke’

#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.
