The only possibility is if someone else has the password.



When you create a group, you become the administrator for the group automatically. As an administrator you can delete pictures and
appointments for all members in a group. Administrators of a group can also control membership of the group, set or change the administrator
password, and delete the group.
Set an administrator password
To perform this task, you must be an administrator of the group.
The password must be at least four characters in length. A member can type the group password that you set for the group to become an
administrator.
1. On the Home screen or in the Instant Messaging folder, click the BlackBerry Messenger icon.
2. On the contact list screen, in the BlackBerry Groups category, click a group.
3. Press the Menu key.
4. Click Administration.
5. Click Set Administrator Password.
6. Type a password.
7. Click OK.
Change the administrator password
To perform this task, you must be an administrator of the group.
A member can type the administration password that you set for the group to become an administrator. The password must be at least four
characters in length.
1. On the Home screen or in the Instant Messaging folder, click the BlackBerry Messenger icon.
2. On the contact list screen, in the BlackBerry Groups category, click a group.
3. Press the Menu key.
4. Click Administration.

Become an administrator
To perform this task, an administrator of the group must have set an administrator password and provided you with the password.
1. On the Home screen or in the Instant Messaging folder, click the BlackBerry Messenger icon.
2. On the contact list screen, in the BlackBerry Groups category, click a group.
3. Press the Menu key.
4. Click Administration.
5. Click Make Me An Administrator.
6. Type the administrator password for the group.
7. Click OK.
Delete a group
To perform this task, you must be an administrator of the group.
When you delete a group, items in the group, including shared pictures, lists, and appointments, are deleted for all members.

Agreed, he did not understand he needed to keep the password known.

Sending him some info to show him the reasons.
I doubt the BBM password has a wipe command so if it were him i would keep trying.
