Met Police Officer Faces Investigation For Appearing On Big Brother

Police officer who 'had sex' on Nigerian Big Brother faces sack - Daily Star BBNaija: Khafi in trouble with UK Police over sex romp with Gedoni

DAILY POST had reported that United Kingdom police on Tuesday said Khafi who is a Metropolitan Police officer, went into the Big Brother Naija show despite being refused permission by her bosses.

The management of Khafi Kareem has risen to the defence of the BBNaija Season 4 housemate saying she remains a "proud black female officer".

But now it seems that career could be in jeopardy as Scotland Yard confirmed in a statement that it would be carrying out an investigation into her conduct and the case had been referred to the force's internal watchdog the Directorate of Professional Standards.

Miss Kareem began as a PC at Lambeth station in 2015 after four years spent as a part-time special constable. She was also a former bit-part actress and shop assistant.

But the 29-year-old had already been granted unpaid leave and joined the show, where she has romped three times with businessman Ekpata Gedoni, 31.

The Met said she was on unpaid leave granted "for an unrelated reason" before being refused permission to appear on the show.

If that wasn't enough, The Sun came under fire for their recent headline Loin of Duty, which came under criticism by Ms Kareem's management for their portrayal of her as a "poster girl for the Met engaging in steamy-on-romp scenes" during the show with fellow contestant, Ekpata Gedoni.

A spokesperson for Ms Kareem said she would "comment on the matter when she can".

"She asked permission to go on the show but, when her request was refused, she went anyway".

Man sinks parents' BMW gift because he wanted a Jaguar instead
According to local media, the man's father is a wealthy landlord and the 22-year-old son already owned several SUVs. The man, known as Akash , is alleged to have pushed his BMW into the water at Yamunanagar in India's north.

'Her out-of-office email reply blatantly says that she is away from work, yet no one does anything.

"Other officers working with her are furious that she can just disobey orders then swan off the Africa and tarnish the reputation of the force".

Africa Magic - the television channel which broadcasts Big Brother Naija, posted on their website that Ms Kareem joined the show so that she do good in society.

"Police officer Khafi Kareem believes that you can have it all if you believe in yourself".

She told the show she is "secretly talented in spoken word, singing and dancing".

She said the paper had not contacted her for her side of the story and the article, which she described as a "defamatory outburst", was damaging to her image.

"The Met is aware that the officer has since appeared on the show without authority", it said.

The Met has said she was not given permission to go on the show, and said all officers have a requirement to behave professionally, whether on or off duty.

A profile of Kareem on the broadcaster's website said she would spend the 30m naira (£68,000) prize money to host a travel show touring Nigeria's "beauty spots" and "invest in charitable causes".
