Ubuntu : Error deleting files from Trash

I was not able to delete and i thought some ownership or rights issue. So i tried to locate trash.

saffrongeek@saffrongeek-laptop:/$ cd ~/.Trash
bash: cd: /home/saffrongeek/.Trash: No such file or directory

Locate trash actually got me the location and it was here as below:
saffrongeek@saffrongeek-laptop:/$ cd /home/saffrongeek/.local/share/Trash/

Now this helps :

saffrongeek@saffrongeek-laptop:~/.local/share/Trash/files$ sudo rm -rf *
