From the looks of it, a hack saw and hammer / punch will be your best friend. Not only is the nut pretty much gone, but the threads on the bolt are messed up so it will not un thread. Can you access the other side of this bolt / stud?

Hack Saw then hammer it out with a screwdriver. Then taper if needs be.

Did you get it removed?

Try applying heat to it. Like a torch then hammering it out once it starts smoking through the bolt
