A Nigerian pop star has offered up her virginity in exchange for the release of the schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram.

Adokiye Kyrian, who describes herself as a United Nations Peace Ambassador, talked about the fate of the schoolgirls in an interview Vanguard Showtime magazine. The 23-year-old said: "This is 11pm in the night and do you know what I am thinking about? Those little girls, where they are and what could be happening to them. It is just unfair. They are too young. I wish I could offer myself in exchange."


She went on to say: "They are between 12 and 15-year-old girls for Christ’s sake. I am older and more experienced. Even if 10 to 12 men have to take me every night, I don't care. Just release these girls and let them go back to their parents."

Boko Haram is a terrorist organisation based in northeastern Nigeria, whose name figuratively translates to "Western education is sin." The group kidnapped 276 schoolgirls in April, sparking international outrage and several high profile online campaigns calling for their release.

A month after the abduction, a video reportedly filmed by the jihadi extremists was released showing Islamist militants and girls in floor-length Islamic dress speaking to camera. Boko Haram's leader Abubakar Shekau spoke for 17 minutes, and said the girls have been converted to Islam and would not be released until Boko Haram prisoners are freed.

In April, Kyrian announced she was a virgin, adding: "Any man that buys my mum the private jet I had promised her, wins my heart."
