All you need to do is tap both “delete account” and the switch to disable Find My iPhone at the same time in the iCloud settings panel. When prompted for a password, then hold down the power button and shutdown the iPhone and reboot it.

You can then enter the iCloud settings panel and remove the account without being prompted for an admin password. To make this hard for unwanted parties to carry out make sure you always have a passcode lock on your device or this could happen to you if your iOS device gets lost or stolen.
