Accordind to these paragraphs:
Chief,’Felix began. ‘How did Dinon escape from prison?’
‘That’s not important now,’ the Chief said.
‘But perhaps he had friends in prison,’ Felix said. ‘Perhaps they know something. I need to talk to people at the prison.’
Why is there 'about' after inquire in the question and I can't use 'about' in the answer?
What did Felix want to inquire about in the prison?
He wanted to inquire if Dinon had friends in prison and if they knew something.
Thanks in advance.
