UK police threatened to fire Big Brother Naija, a housemate of BBNaija 2019, Khafi Kareem. Khafi, a Metropolitan Police officer, attended the Big Brother Naija show even though his bosses denied him permission.
According to The Sun, Scotland Yard said he had not granted his request to appear on the program and that an internal investigation would be conducted.
The 29-year-old joined the program, where she has fought three times with her contestant, Ekpata Gedoni, 31. Furious at her disobedience, one of her colleagues said: “She is a British police officer on duty, she is outrageous.”
“She asked permission to go to the program but, when her request was rejected, it was anyway. “Other officers who work with her are furious because they can disobey orders and tarnish the reputation of the force.”
A spokesman said: “The Met does not support the officer’s appearance nor does he represent the Met while appearing on the program.” The force added that any officer who has violated police standards for professional behavior could face misconduct procedures.
