Oxford Dictionary has Accepted "Mention ABOUT"

When I looked up "or else" in Oxford dictionary, definition section 1.1 says,

"1.1 In circumstances different from those mentioned; if it were not the case." And, one of the example sentences is, ‘It was a good thing she never mentioned ABOUT it, or else I would have been really hurt.

I thought verbs like "mention" and "discuss" are not followed by the preposition "about". I should appreciate it if someone could clarify why Oxford dictionary has accepted this.

Thank you very much.

I suggest you ask the compilers of the dictionary!
