A Nigerian pop singer says she will give up her virginity to Boko Haram if they will release a group of kidnapped girls.

"Even if 10 to 12 men have to take me every night, I don't care," singer Adokiye told the newspaper Vanguard. "It is just unfair. They are too young. I wish I could offer myself in exchange."

Critics took to Twitter to tell the singer and peace ambassador her comments did not help the situation.

One with the handle @Ternique_MO accused the singer of using the kidnappings as a way to promote herself.

"Do you think the Boko Haram gives a f--- about your virginity? Stop seeking attention this is not about your p---- b----."

The 23-year-old singer defended her comments on Twitter.

"Voiceless kids are out there getting into different troubles we don't even know about and all we do daily is hold white paper (with the hashtag) #BringBackOurGirls," she tweeted. "I want them back to their parents please."
