If you installed it using a Debian Package, just remove it using the same tool you used to install it (Synaptic, apt-get, aptitude...). If you checked out code from a version control system (Git, SVN...) or just downloaded it, you can just safely delete the directory.

You can also just move it to somewhere out of your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH in case you might need it later.
