It’s no news that one of the Big Brother Naija 2019 housemates, Khafi, is a serving Metropolitan Police officer in the UK. What’s news is The Sun UK‘s cover story for today.
On Monday, the paper shared a tweet: “Tomorrow’s front page: A police poster girl is facing the sack after having steamy bedroom romps on TV” which is being talked about in Nigerian social media space.
According to The Sun, Met spokesperson in a statement said last night: “The Met is aware that 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.
“All officers have a duty to behave with professionalism and in a manner that does not bring the Met into disrepute whether on or off duty.
“Those who do not behave professionally risk breaching police standards of professional behaviour, and may be dealt with by way of misconduct proceedings.”
Daily Mirror also had a story about Khafi being investigated.
But the cover story has got people talking. The Sun wrote: “Met Cop ‘Has Sex’ on Big Brother” and people have described it as defamatory and fake.
Khafi’s team has also released a statement saying they weren’t contacted to hear their side of the story. The statement added that “legal options are also being considered”.
