Fani-Kayode Reacts As Iran Admits Shooting Down Ukrainian Plane




Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has described the shooting down of a plane carrying 170 passengers by Iran as God’s judgement.

Naija News reports that Iran has admitted shooting the Ukrainian airline, but that it was unintentional.

According to the report which was released on Saturday morning, Iran said it unintentionally shot down the Ukrainian airliner that crashed this week killing 176 people, calling it an “unforgivable mistake”.

Recall that the Ukraine International Airlines plane which crashed on Wednesday has claimed lives of 176 passengers, 63 Canadians and 82 Iranians among others.

Reacting in a post on his Twitter page, Fani-Kayode wrote: “Finally the beasts have confessed. I ask again, where are the low-lives on @Twitter that insulted me when I said the Iranians shot down the plane moments after it came down? Listen to the voice of the voiceless & learn!

“50 people died in a stampede during your hero’s burial. You shot down a passenger jet “by mistake” killing 170 innocent people & earned the hatred of the civilised world.

“Two earthquakes took place in your nation with loss of life. All in 24 hours! Is this not God’s judgement.”
