Abstract: Digital Forensics is relatively new in Nigeria, and whose incubation system available is insufficient to meet the demands explosion of higher Case loads and current internet multimedia devices, services and application intensive environment of cybercrimes has posed serious problems of incomplete web transactions. Stakeholders, security and law enforcement agencies in Nigeria are unwilling and feel reluctant to embrace digital forensics that will overcome the prevalent challenges inherent to cybercrimes in Nigeria because of inhibiting factors. This needs urgent readiness to overcome the tractions that are responsible for apathy to high rate of cybercrimes. If nothing is done, sometime, it may lead to corporate failure, the agencies may suffer disillusionment and frustration. The objective of this study therefore is to design a model for predicting Digital Forensics refinement from Federal level to reach Local Government level in order to reduce the cybercrime rate in Nigeria by 2032 based on growth trend developed from statistical indices. The essence is to explore and analyze the factors that can encourage emergence and advancement of digital forensics true rewarding in the next 10 years, predicted to grow between 2022 – 2032, and use those factors to forecast growth, so that Digital Forensic Investigation and Legal evidences in court of law will receive boost in terms of growth and patronage. The studies also aim at designing a predictive model that simulates the behaviour of the restrictive policies on digital forensic advancement so as to ascertain the current impact on non-motivation, lack of standard, proper management, lack of proper human digital interface and unwillingness to overcome prevalent challenges inherent to cyber crimes in Nigeria. The motivation behind this study is to identify the inhibiting factors responsible for lack of standard motivation to embrace digital forensics in Nigeria. The methodologies that were deployed in packaging the model include: the Statistical Methodology, Structured Systems Analysis and Design Methodology (SSADM) and prototyping. The result is indeed functional software, programmed through Visual Basic Net (VB.Net) that can be used to simulate the behavioural impact of any government policy formulation for Information and Communication Technology Industry and Stakeholders. This is recommended to serve as a watchdog in curbing and checkmating cybercrimes and ensuring Digital Forensics true rewarding and flourish in Nigeria.
Keywords: Model, Predicting Digital Forensics, Cybercrimes, Reinvention, inhibiting factors.
