Ansible script to drop a user

We had a standard user on many Linux systems across the estate that was used for a certain purpose.

Now the project was over we needed to remove them all, the easiest way I thought was a simple ansible playbook, put all the hosts in the hosts file and leave it to run.

Below is the code should you ever need to use it, I have changed the username from the real one to protect the innocent.

- name: Drop THE user
  hosts: droptheuser
  user: root

    - name: Drop the User
        name: username
        state: absent
        remove: yes
