Can’t remove a Facebook group admin
If you can’t remove a Facebook group admin, here are the most common issues that stop you from doing so.
First, you need to be a Facebook group admin to be able to assign or remove admin and moderator access. So if you don’t have Facebook group admin access, then you won’t be able to remove other admins or moderators.
Secondly, if you can’t see the person in the list of Facebook group admins and moderator, it means that she is no longer Facebook group admin or she has left the Facebook group completely.
