Nigerians will now be able to listen online radio to live reports of missing and found #EndSARS protesters, in addition to other information and resources about the movement, thanks to efforts of the unidentified creator.
The radio which has since gone live is called, ‘Soro Soke’ and features a bouquet of programmes aimed at educating and communicating with protesters and also coordinate activities nationwide.
The mantra, Soro Soke, a Yoruba phrase which translates to ‘Speak Up,’ gained traction last week after protesters in Lagos told Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to ‘soro soke’ whilst addressing them. It has become a frequently used slogan for End SARS protesters.

The radio has also established a helpline centre called EndSARS Response to aid protesters during an emergency case. Popular magazine publisher, Dele Momodu, former Minister for Education, Oby Ezekwesili and some other prominent Nigerians have shown support for the initiatives.
“I heard our innovative young ones of the #EndSARS protests have just launched an online radio station? Wow! These ones na real Generation! #GenerationIncredibles.” Ezekwesili tweeted

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 even after a new tactical team was created to fill the gaps left by the now-disbanded unit.
