In order to forcefully let the namenode leave safemode, following command should be executed:

 bin/hadoop dfsadmin -safemode leave

You are getting Unknown command error for your command as -safemode isn't a sub-command for hadoop fs, but it is of hadoop dfsadmin.

Also after the above command, I would suggest you to once run hadoop fsck so that any inconsistencies crept in the hdfs might be sorted out.

Update:

Use hdfs command instead of hadoop command for newer distributions. The hadoop command is being deprecated:

hdfs dfsadmin -safemode leave

hadoop dfsadmin has been deprecated and so is hadoop fs command, all hdfs related tasks are being moved to a separate command hdfs
