Born on March 20, 1931, in Calabar, Odogwu hails from Delta state and holds a high ranking traditional title of Ide Ahaba of Asaba.

He had his secondary school education at Ilesha Grammar School, Osun state and thereafter joined an insurance firm to work as a trainee.

Odogwu was the publisher of now-defunct Post Express Newspapers.

    Chief Odogwu was a good man, a mentor, and a trusted friend.
    He lived a good live.
    Farewell, SIR.
