BBNaija Khafi’s younger brother has been shot dead in West London. What a sad tragedy to the family and Nigeria as a whole.
A 20-year-old man shot dead in West London, has been named by police as Alexander Kareem, who was the younger brother of ex-Big Brother Naija Contestant, Khafi Kareem.
Alexander Kareem, 20, was gunned down close to his family home in Shepherd’s Bush, West London. His older sister Khafi Kareem, 29, was in mourning last night with relatives following the fatal shooting of her younger brother.
The cop was a poster girl for the Met and appeared in publicity photos alongside Met Commissioner Cressida Dick to promote female recruitment. However, she instigated a wrangle by showing on Big Brother Nigeria last summer after bosses refused her request to appear on the show in advance. Pc Kareem spent 77 days in the BBNaija house and became a famous star on reality TV. She has 1.2 million followers on her Instagram account, where she has posted photos of herself with Love Island’s Mike Boateng, also a cop. PC Kareem is currently on restricted duties while the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards investigates her unauthorized appearance on the TV show.

Alexander was killed after suffering gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen on Askew Road in Shepherd’s Bush. According to detectives, a white Range Rover Evoque linked to the murder was later found burnt out three miles away. The police said they were yet to make any arrests.
