THE ROLES OF INDEPENDENT AUDITORS IN
FRAUD CONTROL IN NIGERIA

FOR COMPLETE PRO

ABSTRACT
          This research examines the roles of
independent auditors in fraud control in Nigeria. It focuses on the extent
to which independent auditors are responsible for fraud prevention, detection
and control.
          The population of this study includes
professional accountants and other people with accounting qualifications and
experience.
          The main sources of data comprised of
both primary and secondary sources. The primary data were obtained from the
respondents through questionnaire while the internet, relevant textbooks,
articles in journals and relevant unpublished materials were used to obtain
secondary data.
Data  collected
for this research were analysed through the use of tables, percentage and chi –
square.
From the findings of this research, it was discovered
that respondents are very concerned about the problem of fraud and they placed
that  high expectation on independent
auditors duties in fraud control. This perception is in contrary with the
stated objective of an audit as stipulated in ISA 200 which merely required
auditors to form an opinion on the financial statement but not on fraud
prevention and detection.
The research concludes that the primary objective of
an independent auditor is not only to prevent and detect fraud but nevertheless
they still have their own parts to play in fraud control in Nigeria.
