Khafi Kareem, one of the Big Brother Naija housemate is being investigated for having sex on the show.
Khafi who is also a Met Police Officer had earlier been warned by her boss not to partake in the reality show but she ignored.
A Met spokesman confirmed this last night saying: “A PC, attached to the Met’s transformation command, requested permission to take part in a reality television entertainment show in Nigeria. Permission was not given.
“The Met is aware the officer has since appeared on the show without authority.
“The Directorate of Professional Standards has been informed and will be carrying out an investigation into the circumstances.
“The Met does not support the officer’s appearance nor does she represent the Met whilst appearing on the show.”
Khafi, who speaks French, Italian and her native Yoruba, was once a ‘poster girl’ for the promotion of female and black staff for Met Police and earns about £30,000 a year, was said to have forcefully left her job for the show.
It was reported that the authorities made the move to start an investigation as she became the talk of the show after videos of her having sex with her love interest Gedoni went viral online.
An unnamed colleague who was not impressed by her TV appearance told The SUN newspaper: “She’s a serving British police officer – it’s outrageous.
“She asked permission to go on the show but, when her request was refused, she went anyway.”
Another Met source said: “There should be no way back for her from this and her superiors will have to act.
“She fitted the mould perfectly for how the modern force wants to portray itself but seems to have got a bit too big for her boots.
“It’s hard to see how can she argue that she hasn’t brought the force into disrepute.”
Khafi was put up for eviction yesterday.
