Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Khafi Kareem, is facing a misconduct probe at the UK’s Met Police over her appearance on the reality show in 2019.
According to the BBC, Khafi, a Met Police constable, appeared before a panel on Monday, April 25 at the Empress Building in west London.
The misconduct tribunal heard that hours before going on the show, PC Khafilat Kareem called one of the Met’s most senior officers asking him to reverse an order for her not to do so, and added that she was on the show without authority.
However, at the hearing, the Big Brother Naija star denied allegations of breaching standards in respect of “orders and instructions” and “discreditable conduct”, and failing to declare a business interest in relation to publicity and promotion of the show.
She revealed that she took and surrendered her laptop to organizers of the reality TV show.
Khafi Kareem was one of the housemates on the ‘pepperdem’ edition of the Big Brother Naija reality TV show. She spent 77 days in the house before she was evicted.
The reality TV star married her lover, Ghedoni Ekpata, whom she met on the show in December 2020, and their union blessed with a son.
