Criminal Enforcement of Directors' Occupational Crimes in Nigeria: Issues and Challenges
The issue of enforcement has concerned economists, legal practitioners and criminologists over the years. Where criminal conduct is concerned, enforcement is often considered necessary to punish current offenders and deter prospective ones. Consequently, this article critically analyses criminal enforcement of directors’ occupational crimes in Nigeria. It seeks to discover the obstacles to effective use of criminal enforcement against directors in Nigeria. It argues that there are several generic- and country-specific problems which affect the criminal enforcement regime with regard to directors’ occupational crimes in Nigeria. Consequently, in respect of such crimes, criminal enforcement is unable to effectively deter or punish prospective and current offenders in Nigeria.
