British members of a global evangelical church linked to Constance Marten have spoken out amid claims its
leader raped and tortured followers, forcing some to undergo abortions.

Dozens of former members of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) – five of whom are British – claim that its leader, the late Temitope Balogun Joshua, known as TB Joshua, who had hundreds of millions of followers around the world, ran a “cult” which enabled his campaign of abuse.

Joshua found international fame and recruited thousands of people from across the world, including the UK and other European countries, to his church in Nigeria. He was worshipped and revered as a Christian preacher who claimed to perform miracles, exorcisms, and healing cures and who could commune directly with God.

Constance Marten, 37, who is accused of the manslaughter of her baby alongside her partner, Mark Gordon, 49, was reportedly a former member of SCOAN.

Marten, who grew up on a £100 million estate in Dorset, and whose grandmother was goddaughter of the late Queen Mother, is believed to have travelled to Lagos to join SCOAN when she was in her teens.

Marten and Gordon are due to stand trial later this month and deny the charges against them.
