Why remove? Nagios is cool... All the links above are very useful.  But the experience may vary depening on individuals.

For managing nagios hosts/service, I myself use Nconf (https://www.nconf.org/).

:) I presume, just do a "rm -rf /usr/local/nagios", and "rm /etc/init.d/nagios" would do.

if you install via yum, yum erase nagios, or rpm -e nagios would do if you install via yum, or rpm.
