#EndSARS launches Soro Soke online radio channel

Nigerian youths, the #EndSARS protesters, calling for a total reform of the Nigeria Police Force have launched an online radio with broadcasting name, Soro Soke.

The formation of the online radio channel is hinged on effective and timely communication aimed to aid the coordination of #EndSARS protests across the country.

newsheadline247 confirmed the broadcast of the radio channel, with link s4.radio.co/s99d55c85b/, when we tuned into the station around 3:30 pm on Sunday listening to songs calling for a reformed Nigeria including Bob Marley’s Get Up Stand Up.

Soro Soke is a Yoruba sentence which translates as ‘Speak Up,’ had last week become a mantra of the #EndSARS campaign after protesters in Lagos State urged Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to ‘soro soke’ (speak up) whilst addressing the youths.
