create or replace procedure kill_session
(pn_sid number
,pn_serial number)
lv_user varchar2(30);
select username into lv_user from v$session where sid = pn_sid and serial# = pn_serial;

execute immediate ‘alter system kill session ”’||pn_sid||’,’||pn_serial||””;
raise_application_error(-20000,’Attempt to kill protected system session has been blocked.’);
end if;

Procedure created.

you can modify the clause lv_user in accordingly to suit your need.
