#EndSARS protesters who have been out on the streets for over a week have taken their advocacy to another level, through the launch of an online radio.
Dubbed “Soro Soke Radio”, songs that align with the objectives of the protesters are currently being played on the station.
Soro Soke is a Yoruba term which means speak up.
The protests against the excesses of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) have continued to gather momentum.
Meanwhile, several Nigerians have taken to social media platforms, especially Twitter to react to the launch of the online radio.
While some commended the initiative, others kicked against it, questioning its usefulness.
“How many million Nigerians know the meaning of Soro Soke? Must we regionalize everything in this country? This is the same thing that brought us here in the first place. I’m tired of this country,” a Twitter user wrote.
“We’re making sense and passing a serious message to the ruling class,” another user wrote.
Here are the things some people have said so far:
