Dahon Speed D7 DNP Hub Removal

I have a Dahon Speed D7 circa 2008 with a DNP "Epoch Cogs" freewheel that I need to remove to replace two brocken spokes.
The freewheel does not have the normal splines for removal but instead appears to have a 12-sided 'hexagon' recess.
Does anybody know what tool will remove this? I assume that the hub screws off.

That's the problem; it does not have splines. Just a twelve-sided 'hexagon-type' socket.

Brakemeister, I owe you an apology and thanks. I bought a standard shimano remover and it fitted fine. Job now done. Thanks again.
