The mismanagement of notable government businesses across the nation has led to the abandonment
of viable public projects and the attendant indiscriminate lay-off of staff in the public sector have
generated the ever-increasing attention in academic, private and public sectors. As a result of the
increase in the level of decadence in the government sector, a gamut of dissenting voices have been
raised necessitating the need to examine the relationship that exist between forensic accounting and
financial crimes in the Nigerian public sector by specifically assessing the measures put in place to
ensure a reduction in financial crimes in the Nigerian public sector and evaluating the effect of litigation
support service on the reduction of financial crime in the Nigerian public sector. The study adopted
survey research design and linear regression technique to analyze the empirical data collected through
questionnaire and oral interview and the hypothesis formulated was also tested. The results of the
hypothesis tested at 5% level of significance revealed that litigation support service had significant but
negative effect (reduction) on financial crimes in the Nigerian public sector. It was recommended that
forensic accounting experts be employed to carry out more litigation support services to serve as
expert witness that will assist the court to reach a conclusion on issues which the court may not
ordinarily have the knowledge to decide, while more forensic accountants be engaged to reduce rate
of fraudulent cases in the Nigerian public sector.
