Unfortunately it will be hard to remove it all without some damage caused to the wall. Cladding is usually put up when the wall is old, unsightly or cracks and damage need to be hidden. You will need to try and remove each panel individually and carefully prying it away from the wall. Also remember that you may need to plaster the wall afterwards and some of the plaster may come off when the cladding comes off, in some cases even brickwork is exposed, take care and use gloves, eye shield and dust mask just in case you inhale some lose debris.
