I suggest you to carefully read this article which explains how to write a good question.
First we can just try to give you a solution you should explain how are your session structured, how do you initialize a session, what 3rd party library (if one) you are using to manage login and logout, show us the code (if it exists) you are trying to use to get the job done.

Just repeating the question title is not enough to help us to help you, sorry.

It might be as simple as this:
$this->session->delete('User');
$this->session->destroy();

Open in new window

But here's the problem with CodeIgniter.  It's so old and outdated that it does not even contain its own way of supporting login and logout functionality.  So as a result, every CodeIgniter installation may be different in this area.  You will have to figure it out for yourself, in your own installation.

If you want to see some of the theory behind the idea of a "logged in user" this article may help.

Best answer: Get rid of CodeIgniter.  Instead, choose Laravel.  You can thank us later.
