Keys can be seen in the RPM database as 'gpg-pubkey' packages.  To see them all:
# rpm -qa gpg-pubkey*

Then you will have figure out which key is for what repository: using
'rpm -qi'.  Then manually remove it using 'rpm -e'.

I'm not good at scripting, but maybe this will help (run this all 1 line):

for pkg in $( rpm -qa gpg-pubkey* ); do echo "$pkg"; rpm -qi "$pkg" |
grep Summary; done;

Someone more knowledgeable can probably recommend alternate methods.
