I've modified a hacksaw blade to gently split a blind bearing after prying out the rollers. Then used a burr knife to bend the shell. Making room for needle nose pliers to bend,tear and rip it out of the hole. Pretty neanderthal but sometimes ya gotta go caveman to get the job done. Just do your best not to destroy the hole or any lands in it. Patience and taking your time are keys to success.
Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.

or maybe a dremel with a carbide burr to further weaken the bearing shell.
