Only 2 users on here, but I need for various reasons to kick the user Ronny from the system now.
We can do that by killing his sshd process. So we run ps aux | grep sshd



We had identified the process for the user. The owner of the process is Ronny, and the process is sshd: ronny@pts
so we know this is the ssh user Ronny we want to kick. Go ahead and kill 25457

And BAM! The user is kicked from your system.

Happy kicking!
