You can't - but why do you feel the need to 'close' apps - i.e. Force Quit them.

Provided you have Find My iPhone enabled, you can go to iCloud.com and lock the device and locate it on a map.

If you were to then sign into a different Apple ID, such as a newly created one, you could turn things like Contacts and Calendars. I say should because if you get any ...
