The Punch reported the 42-year-old, who is the third son of the revered cleric, died in his sleep on Wednesday, May 5, in Eket, Akwa Ibom state.

The newspaper citing sources in the church disclosed that Dare had ministered the previous day and later retired to his bed but did not wake up.
He was said to have been discovered by his wife who raised the alarm.
