How to remove views on snowflake without manual deletion

The problem I’m having

I’m trying to delete some views in PUBLISHED_PROD.
What I was told to do:
delete the view related files on the dbt repo
and then manually removed them on snowflake using SQl command.
I’m wondering why I need to manually delete them when I can use dbt repo.

I’m new to dbt and snowflake but what I’m thinking is now

  1. create a separate file in dbt that includes the commands to delete the views.
    2, dbt-run

Could someone please help me how to do it. Thank you so much in advance!
