Big Brother Naija Season 4 housemate, Kafilat Kareem has drawn the ire of her employers, the Metropolitan Police in the United Kingdom following her appearance in the reality television show reports Prime Business Africa. 

The MET Directorate of Professional Standards insisted that the Nigerian-born police officer was not permitted to appear on the show produced by Multichoice.

Kareem is a Police Constable but defied orders from above not to be on the programme albeit she was officially asked to go on her annual.

The beautiful housemate entered the Big Brother house in Lagos in June 2019 and lasted 77 days before being evicted.

Consequently she has been served a written letter with a stern warning not to embark on such public appearance without due approval.

The misconduct panel, sitting at the Empress Building in west London, found PC Kareem had breached the standards of professional behaviour in relation to “orders and instructions” and “discreditable conduct”.

Following the panel’s conclusion, Det Ch Supt Andy Day disclosed:

“Permission was refused for PC Kareem to appear on the Nigerian version of Big Brother as it was felt it was not in the best interest for either her or the Metropolitan Police Service to take part.

“Despite this refusal, she went on the show anyway.

“A detailed investigation was carried out by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards which concluded PC Kareem should face gross misconduct proceedings.

“Being a police officer means you must abide by the standards of professional behaviour. PC Kareem’s behaviour clearly fell far short and she has been given a final written warning.”

Kareem admitted one misconduct allegation of surrendering her work laptop to the producers of Big Brother Naija which was won by Video vixen, Media personality, Entrepreneur and actress Mercy Eke, but had denied three other misconduct allegations.
