Nigerian youths requesting for a complete reform of the Nigeria Police Force have launched an online radio, Soro Soke.
It was gathered that the channel , via efficient and timely communication, is anticipated to help the coordination of # EndSARS protests nationwide .
Recall that,#EndSARS started as a social movement in Nigeria on Twitter , calling for the banning of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigerian Police Force ,unfamously known for oppression,rape, extortion,and brutality amongst other vices ,before Nigerians took to the streets.
The protestation has however gone global with Nigerians in Diaspora,and international celebrities showing solidarity with the movement. The #ENDSARS hashtag had up to 28 million tweets in less than a month.
At around 1pm on Sunday programmes and live reports of missing and found # EndSARS protesters were transmitted on the radio, https : // s4 . radio. co/ s 99 d55 c 85 b/listen. Songs demanding for a reformed Nigeria were also being played .
Soro Soke,a Yoruba sentence translated ‘ Speak Up ’ in English, emerged a slogan of the # EndSARS campaign after protesters in Lagos State implored Governor Babajide Sanwo -Olu to ‘ soro soke’ while addressing the youths ,last week.
Suffice to say,Soro Soke is also a metaphor for all Nigerians to speak up against bad governance and resist corrupt leaders in the country.
The Twitter handle of the station , @ Sorosoke247 , displayed,“ 24 / 7 update on all things protest . We are for a better nation powered by value for life and good governance . ”
