afaik there is no easy universal way -- it would depend on how it was
installed, thus e.g. .deb/.rpm packages would provide facility for
corresponding removal (e.g. with or without config files -- --remove vs
--purge in Debian)
sure we could come up with some cruel generic uninstall script but
that might bring more pain than gain imho

just avoid any manual installations and install backport builds of
fail2ban Debian packages for any reasonable release of Debian and Ubuntu:
Debian's init script is in debian branch under debian/fail2ban.init iirc[ -z "$SOCKFILE" ] && SOCKFILE='/var/run/fail2ban/fail2ban.sock'
