This Quick guide will teach you How to remove any email or Gmail account from your Android phone step by step.
After I got an Android OS update I added a second email account. Moreover, it is my second Gmail account but later on, I wanted to remove it. I tried for several minutes but was unable to do it and then I googled it but relevant was available so I thought of writing this guide.
After trying for another 30 minutes found the solution with luck Sharing it below :
