[tlhIngan Hol] using the verb {ja'} without the prefix trick

I know that perhaps this is a ridiculous thing to ask, but I'll ask anyway,
just to make certain.

The only Ca'Non examples of the verb {ja'} which I know of, come from tkd
and they are the following:

{nuja'rup} "they are prepared to tell us"
{qaja'pu' HIqaghQo'} or {HIqaghQo' qaja'pu'} "I told you not to interrupt

In these Ca'Non examples the "prefix trick" way of use is employed (I don't
know how else to describe it), i.e we don't have {maHvaD ja'rup}, and we
don't have {SoHvaD jIja'pu' HIqaghQo'}/{HIqaghQo' SoHvaD jIja'pu'}.

So, the thing I'm wondering is this..

Is it necessary that whenever we use the {ja'} we need to use it the
"prefix trick" way? Can't we use it with the {-vaD} way too?
