How to force a thread node to leave the network

We have a simple setup using two FRDMKW41Z evaluation boards. One runs the frdmkw41z_wireless_examples_thread_end_device_freertos reference project, the other the frdmkw41z_wireless_examples_thread_router_eligible_device_freertos project.


Using the shell on the boards we create the network on the router and joins the network on the end device.


Now we want to exclude the end device from the network.


Using the shell we have tried different things on the router, e.g. below sequence:
- factoryreset
- thr create
- thr joiner removeall


However the end device is still in the network, e.g. when pressing SW3 the LED on the router changes.


What measures can the router do in order to get the node of the network?
