News had emerged during the 2019 Big Brother Naija that Khafi who is a Scotland Yard police officer faces the sack for appearing on the reality TV show without permission.
Several reports had it that she disobeyed orders from her bosses to appear on the show and that the force launched an investigation two months ago into the officer, who works in Lambeth, South London, for allegedly breaching professional standards.
Khafi Miss is now expected to learn whether she faces a misconduct hearing following talks with Scotland Yardtop brass in the coming weeks. In an interview following her eviction last month, she told the Nigerian website Legit: ‘No action has been taken by the Met Police authorities yet. She had said:
‘In fact, they are waiting for me to come back to work. I will travel back to the United Kingdom soon and we would talk about all these things.’
Kareem was evicted from the show on September 15 but did not return to the UK immediately as she stayed back in Nigeria for her media rounds. Khafi had also posted photos on her Instagram page last week from a meet-and-greet with fans at a Nigerian restaurant in Lewisham, South East London.
Khafi turns 30 tomorrow, November 3 and she has posted a series of photos and videos to share her excitement about the fortchoming birthday.
In one video filmed as she walked along a street, she said: ‘Hey everybody, I just wanted to say hello from London. It is cold, my eyes are watering.
‘It is very, very cold. But I wanted to say this is a new week, guys, this is the beginning of a new week. And I just want to say, guys, go for your goals. It’s a new week, it’s a new start. I know last week has happened, whatever has happened has happened. But now it’s a new week – let’s go strong. I’m counting down to a new decade of my life – 30 years, three decades – and I’ve been doing a lot of reflection. And I’m just thinking, this life is for the taking.’
During the course of the show, her romance with fellow contestant, Ekpata Gedoni was a major topic of conversation. Contrary to popular speculation, the duo has denied that they had sex during the course of their stay on the show. After allegations about her conduct emerged in August, a representative said she is a ‘proud black female police officer who prides herself in her work’.
