The Sun, a major tabloid in the United Kingdom, on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, published a story on its front page of BBNaija’s Khafi allegedly having sex in the house. The story was titled “Loin Of Duty: Met Police ‘poster girl’ faces sack for ‘having sex’ on Nigerian Big Brother after being told not to take part”.
The 29-year old, who joined the force as a police constable in 2015, was filmed allegedly having steamy on-screen romps with fellow contestant Ekpata Gedoni, 31, while appearing on the show. But Khafi had already been granted unpaid leave and joined the show, where she has romped three times with Gedoni.
Their romance has viewers gripped but she is facing an investigation by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards. One of her colleague said: “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.
In less than a few hours after the release of the tabloid, Khafi started trending on Twitter with a lot of people airing their diverse views on the alleged sex incident and the possibility of her losing her job.
