Rafiu Ladipo, president general of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club, said their musical instruments, including drums, trumpets and others were confiscated at the gates.

"This is unacceptable," a very angry Ladipo told

"The Nigeria supporters club has attended every Fifa World Cup since 1994, except 2006 when we didn't qualify, and we have always gone there with our instruments.

"We cannot understand why we were prevented from taking them in this time. And we are going to make an official complaint to Fifa."

Ladipo also accused organizers of double standards, claiming other countries at other venues had musical instruments in the stands.

"We saw Brazilian supporters with musical instruments, and we also saw some other countries too.

"Is there double standards? We want to know."

This is wrong of FIFA but then Nigerians only have themselves to blame. Nobody trust a Nigerian. Maybe they think you want to use the instruments to hide illegal substances.

Those musical instruments dilute the mood of a soccer match, just like Vuvuzelas. If Nigerians want to use them then they must wait for their own world cup in Abuja

FIFA is counter revolutionary on the current outcry on what is happening in Nigeria, but to me that is non related to football.
