Ex-BBNaija housemate, Khafi Kareem who turns a year older today November 3rd has revealed that the London Metropolitan Police in the United Kingdom where she was an officer before participating in Big Brother Naija 2019 has officially asked her “when she would return to work” after her highly circulated suspension earlier in the year.
Khafi who returned to the UK two weeks ago, told Mirror in a new interview, that she did ask her bosses for permission to go on the show but they declined her request. She said the police have since contacted her and asked her to return to her seat.
“I started to ask what the procedure is, what would I do, I thought I might actually get into the show. I wanted to do everything by the book even though I didn’t know if I was in the show or not. I spoke to as many people as I was told to. I was told to go to my commander; I explained the situation, I told him I wanted time off – three months off of work and the reason was because I might get on Big Brother.” she said during the interview.
Khafi while still in the House, was in the news as there were reports that MET police authorities were thinking of terminating her appointment for going on the show without any permission from her superiors.
“Work has been really great, we’ve been speaking and communicating, they asked me when I’d be coming back to work. I’m not sure when I’m going to go back yet. I want to get back as soon as possible, I’m passionate about keeping London safer.” she said.
Khafi also denied claims that herself and her former housemate turned lover, Gedoni Ekpata, had sex while in the house. She confirmed they were in a serious relationship and hopes they are still together. “We are still together now – I met someone in there and fell in love with him. I hope we will be together for a very long time.” she consluded.
