Assuming your system Python is 2.7, your numpy should have been
installed in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ (or
/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ as on Ubuntu?)

So something along these lines:

$ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/numpy/
$ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/numpy-*.egg*
$ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/bin/f2py
