Chapter one on The Role of Auditors in Prevention of Fraud in Banking Industry


Background of the Study

The role of auditors in fraud control and monument is essential. Fraud has been one of the most problematic and unsolvable matter for business all over the world for a long time; however, there has been much more attention and research dedicated to the topic after the scandals such as Enron, WorldCom and others. Frauds have led to loss of huge amount of money in the banking industry and nation’s economy in general (Fatoki, 2015). Researchers have discovered that fraud contributed drastically to the financial distress of poor performance of many banks in Nigeria (Austin, 2011). According to Olorunsegun (2010), fraud is a major challenge of banking industry and this makes all banks vulnerable and distress. The management of each bank spends their hard-earned money to curtail it occurrence. Moreover, it puts question marks on the integrity of the employees and management of the banks and also gives rise to absolute loss of customers’ confidence in banking. Adeyemo (2012) asserted that banking frauds are made possible with insiders or staffs collaboration. The management and staffs of every bank are expected to carry out their responsibilities with ultimate sincerity of purpose devoid of fraudulent practices to enhance public gain, trust and goodwill. Besides the role played by banking industry in growth and development of the nation economy, fraud goes a long way in depriving the economy of the necessary funds required for sound economic activities. It was discovered that the actions taken by the management of the banks in the aftermath of fraud cases are insufficient in stopping another fraud from been perpetrated. In a study carried out by Onwujiuba (2013), it was revealed that the managements of banking industry are not putting up enough measures that can prevent and control banking frauds, hence, the reason for incessant fraudulent practices in Nigeria.
