I suppose that those files are created by dokuwiki, and so they have uid/gid of the user your webserver is running as. If you don't have  root permissions on your server you can simply use a small php script, like

system("rm -rfv data/");

and putting this in the base directory of your doku installation, then you use a browser to invoke it.

More safely, you can change permissions of those files/directories to 0777 (using a similar php script), then you should be able to delete them.
