Unable to remove userGroup

After trialling using vIDM as an authentication source for vROps 6.6.1, the authentication source was removed, however the local userGroup which was created called "vIDM Administrators" can not be removed now because a ghost user still belongs to the group. The GUI gives the error "User with id 2d70909a-43d5-4ac4-a1bb-d63d1f9ca4b0 does not exist". I have even tried using the vROps API to remove the userGroup and it also shows the error

** Get userGroup ** GET /suite-api/api/auth/usergroups/61362eb0-e82f-46a1-9a71-988c3650ea34

{

    "id": "61362eb0-e82f-46a1-9a71-988c3650ea34",

    "name": "vIDM Administrators",

    "description": "",

    "userIds": [

        "2d70909a-43d5-4ac4-a1bb-d63d1f9ca4b0"

    ],

    "roleNames": [],

    "links": [

        {

            "href": "/suite-api/api/auth/users/2d70909a-43d5-4ac4-a1bb-d63d1f9ca4b0",

            "rel": "RELATED",

            "name": "containedUser"

        },

        {

            "href": "/suite-api/api/auth/usergroups/61362eb0-e82f-46a1-9a71-988c3650ea34",

            "rel": "SELF",

            "name": "linkToSelf"

        },

        {

            "href": "/suite-api/api/auth/usergroups/61362eb0-e82f-46a1-9a71-988c3650ea34/permissions",

            "rel": "RELATED",

            "name": "userGroupPermissions"

        }

    ]

}

** Delete userGroup ** DELETE /suite-api/api/auth/usergroups/61362eb0-e82f-46a1-9a71-988c3650ea34

{

    "message": "Internal Server error, cause unknown.",

    "moreInformation": [

        {

            "name": "localizedMessage",

            "value": "User with id 2d70909a-43d5-4ac4-a1bb-d63d1f9ca4b0 does not exist"

        }

    ],

    "httpStatusCode": 500,

    "apiErrorCode": 500

}

Any help in removing this userGroup called "vIDM Administrators" would be greatly appreciated.
