The team managing the social media accounts of Big Brother Naija 2019 housemate, Khafi Kareem, has threatened legal action against The Sun UK newspaper after a damning report about the housemate’s sexual escapades and the disapproval of the London Metropolitan Police.

The newspaper had published the report on Monday without Khafi’s side of the story.

A spokesman of the MET Police was, however, quoted saying the Directorate of Professional Standards has opened investigation on the 29-year-old’s ‘unprofessional conducts’.

Khafi, a UK police constable, was told not to partake in the show but she left anyway, drawing ire from the authorities.

A press statement on Tuesday by the handlers of her Instagram account, acupofkhafi, demanded an apology and retraction of the report within 48 hours or legal action would be opened against the paper.

The statement, however, did not address allegations that Khafi did not get approval to partake in the reality TV show.

The statement said: “This brazenly sensational and defamatory outburst by The Sun UK is written in poor taste without considering the ethics of journalism which seeks balance and objectivity.

“At NO time did The Sun UK send a mail of inquiry to Khafi’s official email which is blasted across her social media platforms under active management to confirm or refute the claims in the publication.

“Khafi’s side of the story is deliberately and conveniently omitted to sell a pre-conceived narrative while responses from ‘outraged colleagues’ and ‘other papers’ riddle the publication.

“This comes from a repressive culture of shaming and characterizing women for their sexual decisions and life choices.

“We find The Sun UK’s publication repulsive and damaging to the image and livelihood of our client.

“Khafi is a proud black female police officer who prides herself in her work and has dedicated her youthful years protecting and serving with her many skills which include the ability to speak at least five international languages.”
