Delete permanently storage account and re-create in new tenant

I would like to permanently delete a storage account in an old tenant and then re-create it with the same name in a new tenant.

For now I cannot do that because it says that the name has already been taken.

    @Dung Tan Hoang Nguyen Posting the offline discussion!

    We were successfully able to delete the Storage account in the backend and able to recreate the same name storage account "styumiplatformuat" in the new tenant.
