Yes you can remove nginx error log extra files (like error.log.1) but do not remove main log file (like error.log) remove only error.log.1, error.log.2, error.log.3 and more.

You can delete them vai below command lines

sudo find /var/log/ -type f -regex '.*\.log.1$' -delete

Please check path before use this command.
