Orphaned Event Receivers

Recently we needed to uninstall Nintex Workflow from our Sharepoint 2013 server. Unfortunately, after completing official uninstallation guide, Nintex left some orphaned Event Receivers entries in Central Administration’s database, which are causing errors and issues with publishing in Sharepoint. Is there any way to safely remove those objects? I assume simply removing it from database is not the best idea.


Below received error from test-SpContentDatabase on Central Administration database:
