Recently bought a bike, and I am having trouble detaching the front wheel, it has a quick release but when taking that out I am left with this (see pictures below)

any suggestions?

It seems it is broken, can you insert the lever into the axle, and put the lever into the little space, and turn it, i should come out

That's a Maxle Thru axle. You're not supposed to remove the lever
