After raising close to N100million from donations, EndSars protesters have taken another step to launch an online radio tagged “Soro Soke” Radio.
In a tweet by a media mogul, Dele Momodu, the online radio was launched to give a live update about the protest across Nigeria.
The EndSars protesters in the past few days have been calling for a total overhaul of the Nigeria Police Force.
The protest has also shown that Nigerian youths are calling for an end to bad governance and impunity in the system.

The radio is designed to aid the coordination of #EndSARS protests nationwide.
When InfomediaNG tuned in to the station around 3PM on Sunday, there was an update about the endsars protest in Port Harcourt.
Meaning of Soro Soke
Soro Soke, which means “Speak Up” in Yoruba language. It became a mantra of the #EndSARS campaign after protesters in Lagos State urged Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to ‘soro soke’ whilst addressing the youths.
It also means, “you can say that again” depending on the context and circumstances.
Soro Soke is also a metaphor for all Nigerians to speak up against bad governance and resist corrupt leaders.
But in recent times, some protesters have been adding “were” to the sentence. Were means a mad person
“Soko Soke Were” meaning speak up mad man, it is used in an abusive way to downgrade a speaker in a conversation.
