Is there a way to delete groups as an admin without being part of the group?

We have som private Yammer groups thats called something with "test" and is not in use, so I want to delete them to clean up a little.

If I want to delete a Teams team, I go into the admincenter and select the teams I want to delete - and click 'delete'. 

Is it a similar way to delete Yammer groups?

@Tonje Waasjø Each Yammer group can be deleted by going to the settings for the group (click the gear menu on the group's header), and you can do this as an admin if you enter Private Content Mode.

 

You should also be able to delete the groups in the O365 admin center (under Groups ) or in Azure AD Admin center (also under groups).
