Have you tried using sp_droppublication ?

exec sp_droppublication @publication='MergeRepl_scds_pro_test09'

Msg 14013, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_MSrepl_droppublication, Line 86
This database is not enabled for publication.

The publication is still in the replication monitor

What about sp_removedbreplication ?
Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Task Manager for Hyper-V provides critical information that allows you to monitor Hyper-V performance by displaying real-time views of CPU and memory at the individual VM-level, so you can quickly identify which VMs are using host resources.

Yes and I also tried:
exec sp_removedistpublisherdbreplication 'MergeRepl_scds_pro_test09','scds_pro

As you can see from the attached image, the publication is in the monitor, but there is nothing associated with it AND there is no publication associated with it either...SMH

Here is what I have done in the past:
1. Create a dummy publication with the same name (just one article).
2. Now drop it.
