how to remove vol. group which are in lvmtab but disks are not there ?

Apparently, someone removed the disks (array) associated with VG (/dev/apps) before reducing and removing the VG itself..
I got lvmtab showing a VG which I dont need and really dont have any disks attached to it?

How I can removed any references of /dev/apps VG from lvmtab and all its device files in /dev/apps ?

#strings /etc/lvmtab
/dev/vg00
IwLA
/dev/dsk/c2t1d0
/dev/dsk/c3t0d0
/dev/apps
IwLB
/dev/dsk/c11t0d1
/dev/dsk/c10t0d1
/dev/dsk/c11t0d2
