CNB News – Ex-BBNaija housemate, Khafi Kareem, says she has been asked to resume work at the London Metropolitan police in the United Kingdom where she was an officer before participating in Big Brother Naija 2019.
While she was in the House, there were reports that MET police authorities were thinking of teminating her appointment for going on the show without any permission from her superiors.
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.
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 “I started to ask what the procedure is, what would I do, I thought I might actually get into the show.
