I presume you are trying to kill a different session.  Try:

select * from sys.v$session where USERNAME LIKE ‘SCHEMA_NAME here%’ and status=’ACTIVE’;
as mentioned already, you cannot kill the current session from the same session. so either kill some other session or when you disconnect/log off, then your session gets closed off automatically.

but the syntax you had used to kill the session is correct but it just needs some other sid & serial#
