Nigeria's official supporters club are to protest to Fifa after being denied from taking their equipment into the Arena Baixada in Curitiba on Monday.
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 KickOffNigeria.com.
"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."
