Scotland Yard says female Police Officer on Big Brother Naija is appearing on the TV show ‘without authority’

An officer in the UK Police Force has been appearing on the Nigerian version of Big Brother despite her bosses refusing her permission.

Earlier, the Metropolitan Police said it was carrying out an internal investigation after Police Constable (PC) Khafi Kareem known as Khafi on the show went on the programme “without authority”.

According to BBC, Scotland Yard said the 29-year-old had been granted unpaid leave for an “unrelated reason”. Apparently, Ms Kareem had been granted unpaid leave ahead of appearing on the show, but her request to take part in the programme was denied.

Khafi recently went ahead to tweet, “Tough times don’t last but tough people do”. In her tweet, she also invited people to vote for her to stop her eviction from the house on Sunday.

Ms Kareem is a favourite of fans for her happy-go-lucky attitude and witty contributions during her diary sessions.
A prize of 60 million Naira ($165,000) – half of that in cash, is guaranteed the winner of the show.

The off-duty officer has also posted a statement requesting that the UK Sun newspaper withdraw an article that alleges she faces the sack for having sex on the show.

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.

“Khafi’s side of the story is deliberately and conveniently omitted…This comes from a repressive culture of shaming and characterising women for their sexual decisions and life choices,” a statement on her Twitter feed reads.

According to TV channel Africa Magic, which produces the reality show, says the contestant “wants the exposure that being in Big Brother Naija House brings so that she can do societal good”. A profile of Ms Kareem on its website reveals she would spend the prize money, reportedly worth 30 million naira (£68,000), on hosting a travel show in Nigeria, as well as investing in charitable causes.

The force added that any officer found to have breached police standards of professional behaviour could face misconduct proceedings.
