For Bulk Deletion:

For bulk deletion just make a check on all the users you want to remove and under bulk option choose delete and you are done.

Note: Though you are allowed to delete all the posts made by the particular user, comments made the users you have deleted will still be in display and if you want to delete them you have to delete them individually buts its not recommended to delete the comments unless they are abusive in nature and won’t help other users.
