CP Odita, a communications expert, media mogul, Principal Consultant/CEO FrankCom Limited, who hails from Delta State, retired from the Nigeria Police Force in 1993 after a well-celebrated and meritorious service to the nation

He was a Co-founder and Presenter, Security Watch Africa, and was instrumental to the floating and establishment of various Television/Radio programmes  which served to show the inner workings of the Police and thereby improve its perception amongst the public. 

His death occurred in the evening of 24th June, 2023, after a brief illness, at the age of 84, at the Critical Care Unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) 

While commiserating with the family, the IGP urges them to be strong and focus on upholding the legacies of their husband, father, and grandfather. The IGP equally restated that he was a man dedicated to diligence in his lifetime both within and outside of public service.
