#BBNaija: Khafi’s management to take legal actions against The Sun Uk

Following publications about Nigerian UK based police officer, Khafi Kareem’s appearance in the Big Brother Naija reality TV show, the management has threatened to take legal actions.


The Sun had on Tuesday reported that Khafi, who is a PC with the Metropolitan Police, had been denied permission by the organisation to participate in the reality show.


The UK Sun further reported that Khafi’s alleged sex romps with Gedoni on the show have further incensed her colleagues and bosses for bringing the force into disrepute.

However, Khafi’s management isn’t taking the publication lightly as they request a retraction of the story within 48 hours, or face legal actions.


The statement read: “The attention of Khafi’s management has been drawn to a publication by The Sun UK on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, 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 brazen 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 characterising 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.


“We demand an immediate retraction of the publication by The Sun UK and a public apology to our client Khafilat Kareem within the next 48 hours.


“Legal options are also being considered at this time.”

    Miss Kareem’s managers and lawyers should accept nothing less than unreserved apologies from The Sun for defamation of the Nigerian lady. That paper is noted in the UK for its unbridled propensity at character assassination, even worse than The News of the World” which it replaced. The News of the World died in the end by these poisonous emissions from its own entrails and that will be the ultimate fate of The Sun; just wait and see.
