How to uninstall Splunk Universal Forwarder from Linux

Explorer

I have installed the universal forwarder on a linux machine. How can I uninstall it?
I install the forwarder just by using tar and splunk install app....

I saw this question (https://answers.splunk.com/answers/139078/uninstall-splunk-on-linux.html?utm_source=typeahead&utm_me...) but it refers to installations done with rpm
