Big Brother Naija’s Pepper Dem season housemate, Khafi Kareem, who is also a Metropolitan Police officer in the United Kingdom, has come under investigation for appearing on the reality TV show despite being refused permission by her employers.
The Metropolitan Police said it had not granted Kareem’s request to appear on the show and that an internal investigation would be carried out.
The Force added that Kareem was granted unpaid leave for an “unrelated reason” ahead of appearing on the show, but her request to take part in the programme was denied.
The UK Police Force added that any officer found to have breached police standards of professional behaviour could face misconduct proceedings
A post on the website of Africa Magic says Ms Kareem joined the show “to do societal good.”
“Police officer Khafi Kareem believes that you can have it all if you believe in yourself.
“She is not only hoping to win the prize money but she wants the exposure that being in the Big Brother Naija House brings, so that she can do societal good.
“What people don’t know about her is that she is secretly talented in spoken word, singing and dancing. She is an Ekiti native who resides in London.”
The post also said Kareem would spend the prize money on hosting a travel show in Nigeria, as well as investing in charitable causes.
