I haven't torn mine apart but I have torn down many cameras.  My first option choice would be to try to bend it back without removing anything.  I see 9 screws (four on the bottom, four on the same side as the HDMI port, and one on the opposite side).  It may be possible to take out the screws and remove the front plate.  The battery door will likely need to be unlatched and it will also likely fall out once the front plate is removed.  There may be hidden screws that you can't see.  Under the hot shoe spring is a common place to find hidden screws.  Go slow and be careful.
