"enter" should not be followed by "into"

It should be 'we entered in the room'.

There are so many sentences in which "into is followed by enter".

Enter into means to Participate :).

But you cannot enter into a room because that's "redundancy"--both to enter a room and to go into a room refer to the same physical action.

Entered cannot be followed by into.

Enter should not be followed by as if a person enter physically. In some cases, we can use Enter followed by into.

Enter itself is get into, so no need of using entered into, it's like return back where returns itself is coming back!
