The Islamic Republic of Iran has shutdown a United States Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) over the straits of Hormuz sending warning signal to the world’s most powerful military.

The aircraft which was shutdown is worth over $120 million and similar to the Global Hawk UAV belongs to the United States Airforce (USAF).

The United States says the aircraft was shutdown over international waters as the Iranians claim the aircraft voilated its Territorial integrity.

This is the most recent escalation in the tension between the world’s only surving superpower and the Middle East regional power.

The critical question at this point is whether the US is at the brink of being drawn into another Middle East war and what will it mean for Nigeria and Africa?
