The channel is expected to aid the coordination of #EndSARS protests nationwide by ensuring effective and timely communication.
The station is live on https://s4.radio.co/s99d55c85b/listen.
Soro Soke translates as ‘Speak Up.’ The slogan became a mantra of the #EndSARS campaign last week after protesters in Lagos State urged Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to ‘soro soke’ 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, @Sorosoke247, reads, “24/7 update on all things protest. We are for a better nation powered by value for life and good governance.”
The youths had earlier called for the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad who they accused of brutality and extrajudicial killings.
They later came up with a five-point demand following the disbandment of the squad by the Presidential Panel on Police Reform.
The demands are the release of all arrested protesters, justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensation for their families. They also want increased salaries for police officers as well as the establishment of an independent body to oversee the investigation and prosecution of all reports of police misconduct.
The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, said the police authorities would carry out psychological evaluation and re-training of all disbanded SARS officers before they are redeployed.
