Removing Contacts from old Account (iOS)

Wondering if anyone can help me. I started a new job recently but after completely removing the accounts from my old company, my phone still suggests contacts from that account (which are not part of any account currently tied to the phone). Is there any way to clear that out so I don't keep seeing old colleagues names show up when I go to email, text, or whatever else?

Same for other apps as well I guess. My IG and Twitter suggestions are also still filled with colleagues and clients from my old job. Am I stuck with them? In a new industry so I'll never speak with these people again. No need to see their IG posts...

Are sure the contacts were not synced to iCloud and your primary email company.

I have triple and quadruple contacts in my ios contacts list and everytime I delete a bunch they all come back.

Have you tried deleting the contact on the website instead, icloud.com?
