Youths calling for a total overhaul of the Nigeria Police Force have launched an online radio, 'Soro Soke'.
The channel, through effective and timely communication, is expected to aid the coordination of #EndSARS protests nationwide.
Since the launching, programmes and live reports of missing and found #EndSARS protesters have been escalated on the radio, https://s4.radio.co/s99d55c85b/listen.
Songs calling for a reformed Nigeria were also played on the station.
'Soro Soke', a Yoruba sentence loosely translated as ‘Speak Up,’ had last week become a mantra of the #EndSARS campaign after protesters in Lagos State urged Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to speak louder whilst addressing the youths
'Soro Soke' is also a metaphor for all Nigerians to speak up against bad governance and resist corrupt leaders.
The Twitter handle of the station, @Sorosoke 247, reads, “24/7 update on all things protest. We are for a better nation powered by value for life and good governance.”
The government and some business leaders had tried to persuade the youths to leave the streets but the protesters have insisted that until the government implements their demands, the demonstrations would continue.
Over N80m has been raised for the #EndSARS campaign which has gained the support of well-meaning people at home and abroad.
