I would choose "about". He is telling a story about what happened.
Student or Learner
I have a question about the usage of "testify about" and "testify to". Suppose the setting is a court trial for a burglary case, and John is on the witness stand:
How is "about" and "to" different?1. John testified about Peter's role in the burglary.
2. John testified to Peter's role in the burglary.

So, what would "John testified to Peter's role in the burglary" mean?
