You might be able to use a tool like this. (if you don't need to reuse that nut)


One end angles the edges of the hole. The other end digs into the hole you drill and helps you turn it. It turns the opposite way of a normal screw. Could maybe use something like that and a screw driver to hold the other side.

This will also DESTROY whatever you use it on. Not the best way to unscrew something, but it might work as a last resort.
