First of all you have to configure your groups properly to keep data for
5 days.

You can do this generally in
      Configuration->Local Server->NNTP->Days to keep data
or on a per group base in
      Configuration->News->Newsgroups->Settings->Days to keep articles
Then you can select "Purge all groups" from the file menu. Alternatively
you can write a script using HamPurge. Please read the documentation on
HamPurge in the help file
