Execute immediate problem

I got this code yesterday to track and kill TOAD sessions:
BEGIN
    FOR s IN (SELECT SID, serial#
                FROM v$session
               WHERE program LIKE '%TOAD%')
    LOOP
        EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'alter system kill session ''' || TO_CHAR(s.SID) || ', ' || TO_CHAR(s.serial#)
                          || '''';
    END LOOP;
END;


It picks up the session, but the execute immediate does not successfully kill the session although the pl/sql completes successfully.  Within that code structure what modification do i need to make it work?

Include immediate keyword. Trap the exception to show the error, if any.
BEGIN
 
FOR s IN (SELECT SID, serial# FROM v$session WHERE program LIKE '%TOAD%') LOOP
    EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'alter system kill session ''' || TO_CHAR(s.SID) || ', ' || TO_CHAR(s.serial#) || ''' IMMEDIATE';
END LOOP;
 
EXCEPTION
 
WHEN OTHERS THEN
DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(SQLCODE || ' - ' || SQLERRM);
 
END;
