Constance Marten Illness And Mental Health Update
Unfortunately, the police did not provide many details about Constance Marten’s illness because the case is still sensitive but her childhood friend stated that she could have been brainwashed by a Nigerian cult.
Her friend is concerned that the rapist’s lover Mark Gordon 35 has a “hold over her.” More than two weeks ago Constance and Gordon abandoned their smoldering vehicle on a Manchester motorway.
They fled across the country with their infant. Gordon was recently sentenced to 20 years in prison for a four-hour assault on a neighbor during which he raped the woman and threatened to “kill her children” if she yelled.
Constance’s companion has revealed how she was “traumatised” by a charismatic Nigerian evangelical church leader. Constance reportedly lived overseas for about six months while in college working for the contentious pastor T B Joshua.
According to an unnamed friend she became one of his followers in Nigeria and felt brainwashed while there. She claimed that the experience had traumatised her and that when she returned she was different.
Constance nicknamed Toots by her friends is thought to have joined the controversial pastor Joshua after taking an evangelical-style course in London that explored Christian doctrine.
According to the acquaintance she is now concerned about Gordon’s potential impact on Constance. Constance’s family became estranged from her after learning of his criminal past and their futile attempts to warn her away according to the friend.
