information on how...

Hi, everyone :)
I know it's ok to say "information on how to do <something>" but is it also possible to say "information on how <something> happened", that is can "info on how" be followed by a subordinate two-member sentence?

    You can use information on/about in this way. Another alternative is to use details of how.

    Examples:
    I'd appreciate some information on how she came to be in possession of a secret document.
    We'd like some information about how he managed to leave the country without a passport.
    Could you give me any details of how they managed to escape from prison?

    thanks!
    So this one is grammatically correct? --
    I can't go into details since I haven't yet got all the necessary information on how it all happened.
