BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The origin of modern insurance are intertwined with the advent of British Trading Companies in the region and the subsequent increased inter-regional trade. Increased trade and commerce led to increased activities in shipping and banking; and it soon became necessary for some of the foreign firms to handle some of their risk locally (Adeyemi, 2005). Trading companies were therefore subsequently granted insurance agency licenses by foreign insurance companies. Such licenses made it possible for such firms to issue covers and assist in claims supervision.
The first of such agency in Nigeria came into force in 1918 when the African and East Trade Companies introduced the Royal Exchange Assurance Agency. Other agencies include Patternson Zochonis (PZ) Liverpool, London and Globe, BEWAC’s Legal and General Assurance and the law Union and Rock (Jegede, 2005).
There was an initial and slow pace of the growth of the insurance industry in Nigeria, particularly between 1921 and 1949, this has been traced to adverse effect of the World War II on trading activities both in the United Kingdom and Nigeria. As soon as the war ended, business activities gradually picked up again and insurance industry in Nigeria began to record remarkable improvement in growth (Gbede, 2003). It was not until 1958 that the first indigenous insurance company, the Africa Insurance Company Limited was established.
Insurance is a form of risk management primarily used to ledge against the risk of a contingent uncertain loss. According to Abebisi (2006) insurance is an intricate economic and social device for the handling of risk to life and property. It is social in nature because it represent the cooperation of various individuals for mutual benefits by combining together to reduce the consequence of similar risks. As every new of risk and since with every passing day, a new insurance package in amounted to take care of more and more areas of risks, the insurance booms.
Agbaje (2005) defined insurance as the business of pooling resources together to pay compensation to the insured or assured (i.e. the pooling holder) on the happening of a specified event in return for a periodic consideration known as premium. As insurance contract is usually evidenced by a document called the insurance policy which is usually signaled at the foot by the insurer or assurer or his agent.
Gollier (2003) argued that insurance involved the transfer of risk from an individual to a group, sharing losses on an equitable basis by all members of the group, the group, known as insurance company, must increase its hold on the premium and widen its profit margin to cope with the demand of their customer.
Dickson (1960) opined that insurance is designed to protect the financial wellbeing of an individual, company or other entity in case of unexpected loss. According to him, some firms of insurance are required by law, while others are optional agreeing to the terms of an insurance policy contract the insurer and the insured.

It is therefore expected that the study findings will be of immense benefit to policy makers, government regulatory agencies, etc. it will also prove very useful to researchers as well as members of the academia.

LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
The sensitive nature of the topic made it very difficult for the researcher to obtain some vital information from banks a wind who asked that we direct all question to bank executive stationed at their head offices as they were not competent to speak on such matters to see their executive necessitated traveling great distance this had as telling effect on financial and talk about the attendant risks involved considering the state of our high ways. Another constraint was that even the executive of know banks currently under liquidation refuse to admit his and so kept a lot of information from us that is as regards briefs from the CBN and NDIC. The most telling constraint however was the time, the time in our banks was very limited.
