The Metropolitan Police has revealed that it is investigating Khafi Kareem, a Big Brother Nigeria housemate for being a part of the show.
According to a press statement by the police department, the 29-year-old police officer is said to be on unpaid leave from the Lambert Station.
The statement revealed that Khafi had asked for permission to be on the show, but her request was turned down.
Met also added that the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) in London would investigate the situation.
“A PC attached to the Met transformation command requested permission to take part in a reality entertainment show in Nigeria. Permission was not given,” the Met statement read.
“The Met Police is aware that the officer has since appeared on the show without authority. The Directorate of Professional Standards has been informed and would be carrying out an investigation into the circumstances.
“The Met does not support the officer’s appearance nor does she represent Met while appearing on the show.” the Met statement read.
The Sun UK had reported that Khafi might lose her job for having sex on the show, which is aired live.
However, in a swift reaction, her management team have threatened to sue The Sun UK for publishing an article that is “damaging to the image and livelihood” to her.
