Not able to delete a repo from the CLI for Subversion

I'm cleaning up Subversion repos that got spread out by accident and going to upgrade Subversion from v 1.6.11 to a newer version on a new RHEL7 VM.

There are repos that were created that are either no longer used or were created haphazardly. The daemon is on and I can grep successfully from the CLI.

I'm trying to use the following command via the CLI to delete a repo:

svn delete -m "delete repo that is no longer needed" file:///data/svn/dept_A/test
svn: 'file:///data/svn/IMO' isn't in the same repository as 'file:///data/svn/dept_A/test'


I've also tried to use the ip address too and got this error message:

svn rm svn:// -m "delete repo"
Authentication realm: <svn://> 678af798-5732-4a81-9cfb-4040117c6091
Password for 'user':
svn: 'svn://' isn't in the same repository as 'svn://'

I was able to delete another repo via TortoiseSVN with no issues, and leave a comment. However I would feel more comfortable doing the cleanup the CLI.

Can someone advise me on what I'm doing incorrectly or is there another way to do this?
